one at six. They hiked, in true Delphian 
tradition, to Fink's. The faculty was rep- 
resented by Mrs. Harriman and the new 
addition to the conservatory, Miss Mor- 

Upon returning to the campus, the 
freshmen were much impressed to see the 
Greek letters of Delphian blazing bright- 
ly in the center of the campus. 

Also scheduled for the Rush-Week ac- 
tivities is a tea which will be held in Del- 
phian Hall Thursday afternoon, October

Wig and Buckle Oilers 
50 Cent Season Ticket 

For the first time in the history of Leb- 
anon Valley College the Wig and Buckle 
Dramatic Club offers students and facul- 
ty a fifty-cent season ticket to all club 
productions. This announcement was 
made jointly by David Jauss, president, 
and John Mohan, production managei, 
of the Wig and Buckle Club. 

The season tickets will admit the hold- 
er to the Homecoming Plays, major fall 
production, and major spring production. 
In previous years the admission to each 
of the latter plays has been fifty or sev- 
enty-five cents. 

The clubs' new offer is made to bring 
the advantages of local dramatics to all 
members of the college. The club desires 
to make Wig and Buckle productions 
part of each student and faculty mem- 
ber's recreation. 

Tickets will be on sale by the end of 
this week. Each person on campus will 
be solicited only once by a salesman. 

Political Science Club 
Invites New Members 

' October 4, 1951, the Political Science 
Club of Lebanon Valley College will 
hold its first meeting for new members. 
The club officers and members cordially 
invite all interested students to attend 
and observe the Political Science Club in 

The climax of the club's activities is 
the annual Intercollegiate Conference on 
Government which this year will be held 
in Harrisburg, in the middle of April. In 

1950 this convention represented a Mod- 
el State Constitutional Convention; in 

1951 a Model National Assembly; and in 

1952 will be a Model National Political 
Convention. During the 1951 Convention 
the Lebanon Valley delegation sponsored 
a bill drawn up by a member, Ronald 
Wolf '51, and which provided for the 
control and eventual destruction of a 
poisonous weed, Halogetan Glomeratus, 
which was attacking the herds of cattle 
and sheep in the northwestern part of 
the United States. This bill, which was 
the first to come before the assembly, 
passed with a definite majority of votes. 

The primary purposes of the club are to 
teach its members the basic principles of 
parliamentary procedure and to show 
them how the representative form of 
government can operate through the 
town meeting plan. Meetings are planned 
to provide drill m parliamentary proced- 
ure, to discuss current events, and to give 
each member of the club opportunity to 
express himself. 

President Frederic K. Miller 

Administrative Staff 
Has Two New Members 

Two new appointments to the admin- 
istrative staff of Lebanon Valley College 
were announced by Dr. Frederic K. Mil- 
ler, president. 

Mrs. Margaret S. Millard, of R. D. 
No. 1, Annville, was named college die- 
tician, and Mr. Clifford J. Light, of R. D. 
No. 2, Annville, was named bookkeeper. 

The former owner and director of 
The Annville Kindergarten, Mrs. Millard 
is a member of the Annville E.U.B. 
church and the Lebanon Women's Club. 
Mr. Light, a 1950 graduate of Lebanon 
Valley College, previously was employed 
as office manager of the purchasing de- 
partment of the R. C. A. Company in 

Community Concerts 
Announce Programs 

The rush to the Music Office in the 
Conservatory to join the Community 
Concert Association has begun. Member- 
ship is three dollars plus sixty cents tax for 
students, five dollars plus one dollar tax 
for adults, and entitles one to attend all 
of the concerts, which will be held in the 
Lebanon High School auditorium. 

This year the following will be pre- 
sented: Tuesday, Oct. 22 — DePaur's In- 
fantry Chorus, which will be remember- 
ed by those who attended the series two 
years ago as most inspiring and technic- 
ally beyond reproach in their varied pro- 
gram; Monday, January 14 — The Phil- 
harmonic Quartet; May 1 — The Longine 
Symphonette, the concert ensemble that 
has long been a radio favorite. This out- 
standing combination of concerts should 
stamp the season as being one of the 
most successful. One more attraction will 
be announced later. 

Students are asked to make reserva- 
tions immediately and pay when able. 
The deadline for payment will be Mon- 
day, October 22, the day before the first 

Lebanon Valley College set some sort 
of a point-after-touchdown record when

Do You Know . . . . ? 

That your Student Christian Association is the major campus wide organiza- 
tion at Lebanon Valley College. 

That each student is automatically of member of the SCA- 
its activities and benefitting from its services. 

eligible for all 

That the SCA is a gathering together of the students for fun, Christian serv- 
ice, and for preparation for dealing with the larger problems of life. 

That the benefits of the SCA are more than the resulting feeling of doing 
good which is caused by creative action; the SCA offers entertainment and re- 
creation — hikes, skating parties, stunt nights, plays, mystery hunts, and pep rallies. 

That the SCA is not composed of select group whose interest and activities 
are mainly church work and social service! Remember those interests listed on 
the questioniares some of you filled out last Wednesday at Fellowship — musical 
ability, public speaking, journalism, art work, folk dancing, reading, typing, and 
preparation of worship services. Are these the activites of a select few? 

The SCA offers you an opportunity to see and participate in the practical 
application of Christian principles. Examine the purpose of the SCA: "We unite 
in the desire to realize full and creative life through a growing knowledge of 

"We determine to have a part in making this life possible for all people. 

"In this task we seek to understand Jesus and to follow Him." 

The SCA wants each student to find his place in the sun; to fill this position 
with joyous living; and to enable others to benefit by his actions and his example. 
The SCA offers its program as an aid to this goal. Serve, participate in, and 
enjoy the activities of your SCA.

Advisors Are Speakers 
AtChem Club Meeting 

On Thursday, September 20, the 
Chemistry Club held its first meeting. 
President Sterling Strause gave an open- 
ing address on the aims of the club for 
the coming year. He also emphasized 
the importance of everyone doing his 
part and participating in club activities. 
He then introduced Sylvester Macut, 
program committee chairman, who, in 
turn, introduced Professor Neidig, new 
head of the chemistry department, and 
Professor Kerr. Both gave short talks on 
the need of a well-rounded education, 
not complete specialization in one field. 
The program then continued with a 
game, the object of which was to get as 
many words as possible in 15 minutes 
from the words Chemistry Club. The 
winners: David Neiswender, Harry Gra- 
ham, Leon Miller, and William Vought 
received automatic pencils as prizes. Re- 
freshments of cider, cookies, and pretzels 
were served. 

Clio Rushing Week 
Includes Hike and Tea 

Clio is looking forward to an eventful 
year under the leadership of president 
Jane Lutz. The first occasion of the year, 
which will be held Friday, September 2S, 
from three to five in North Hall parlor, 
will be the traditional tea. The girls have 
planned various entertainment including 
a modeling display of jewelry, which 
Clio will put on sale at a later date. 

Friday evening Clio and her brother 
society, Philo, have planned a pep rally 
and novelty dance. 

Tuesday, October 2, Clio will hold a 
hike which will be in the form of a trea- 
sure hunt. All non-society girls are in- 
vited to these functions. 

The new Clio advisor has been an- 
nounced. Clio is honored to have Mrs. 
Bender in this position. 

Cheerleading Squad 
Gains Three Freshmen 

The L.V.C. cheerleading squad has 
three new members this year — all Fresh- 
men. The cheerleaders are Beverly Ross, 
who hails from Lower Paxton, Pa. She 
is a science student. The tall blonde is 
Jane Taylor, who claims Bala-Cynwyd, 
Pennsylvania, as her home. She is a mem- 
ber of the conserv. majoring in flute. Last, 
but not least, is Dick Williams. Dick 
comes from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 
He is majoring in chemistry. The old 
members are Lee Whiteman, Junior; 
Paul Holligan, Sophomore; Jeanne Hut- 
chinson, Senior; and Johnnie Walter, Ju- 
nior and captain. Darlene Moyer, a 
sophomore, will be on the squad when 
she returns from New York. 

Soloist George Ritner 
Wins TV Amateur Title 

One of the Conservatory graduates 
who appeared in local concerts during 
the past summer also attained nationwide 
fame when he was named TV amateur 
of 1951. George Ritner won this title 
when he appeared in the Old Gold TV 
final contest after singing on the Old 
Gold Family Hour. He also has appeared 
in concerts at Harrisburg, Mt. Gretna, 
Lebanon, and Reading. 

Pierce Getz made concert appearances 
at Mt. Gretna, and Joyce Carpenter 
starred as a concert soloist at Harrisburg. 
Guest conductors at Reservoir Park con- 
certs this summer included Chester Rich- 
wine, William Cagnoli, and Richard 

Four students who returned to classes 
at the Conservatory this fall also appear- 
ed in summer concerts. Ruth Evans, Al- 
den Biely, Richard Miller, and Dolores 
Zarker were featured in concerts at 
Pennsylvania Chautauqua. 

The Sixth Column 

By this stage of the game you've probably gone through all the tasks, trials, 
and tribulations that are involved in college life. By that I mean that you've 
most likely cleaned your room once, attended all the classes that you will be 
wrestling with for the remainder of the semester, and you've recovered from the 
inevitable agonies of home-sickness. If by any chance you've missed out 0n 
these normalities, then I suggest that you catch up to the rest of the world and 
get on the ole' stick. 

Campus Research a Success 

A recent survey made by some observant, freshmen-minded upperclassmen 
(and there are many) is a gleaming example of the progressiveness of the new 
freshman class — better known as "the people under the dinks." The outcome of 
the survey registered that although the observed subjects have been on campus 
for a little more than two weeks, thirty per cent of the entire class are now go- 
ing steady (half of this percentage is female, of course.) ". . . and they tried to 
tell us we're too young." 

A Mere Matter of Poor Aim 

The beautiful serenade that the frosh fellows brought forth during the first 
week of school was, per usual, appreciated. Tradition is a wonderful thing; so 
wonderful in fact that the North Hall girls even provided the annual sprinkling 
of the choristers. The receptors of the showers, Red Gingrich and George John- 
son (both Sophs), were victims of bad not intentional, bombardeering. Sorry, 

Libby Roper's nose was slighly red when her attention was requested for 
a special dedication all to herself. Despite the fact that she just peaked over 
the balcony, Tony Kiehner's rendition was appreciated by all. 

Pep We Haven't Even Used Yet 

Sammy Yeagley's truck, Bill Kelly's Buick, and Hal Coopersmith's Chevy 
all aided in dragging the lazy people out to the old football field for one of the 
best pep rallies we've ever yelled our darnest at (how'd that preposition get in 
there?) Snyder's A .C. German Band made lots of noise and a big hit. I wish I 
had a nickel for everytime they played the "Lebanon Valley Fight Song." I'm 
all for some scientific research for the prevention of hoarseness among over-en- 
thusiastic cheerers. 

Congratulations to the new frosh cheerleaders, Bev Ross of South Hall, 
Jane Taylor of Sheridan Hall, and Bobby Williams. Johnny Walter as head 
cheerleader is doing a tremendous job of steaming up the pep on campus. This 
is just what the doctor ordered, Johnny, keep it up. 

K-D Forever 

Life on the LV campus in the roaring twenties bloomed again as Kalo-Del- 
phian night in Engle Hall gave the go ahead sign to the prohibition days and all 
the trimmings. In case anyone's interested (and maybe Coach Ricker could used 
this bit of information): the average weight in the chorus line of flappers was 
approximately 130 pounds. Do you know anyone who needs a good backfield? 
Everything in the line was completely in tact except that Betty Nell Gaskill lost 
a (pardon the expression) garter. 

It's too bad that Poochie Kaufman isn't an Aborigine (definition? — a native 
who eats, drinks, and plays the ukelele with his toes). In case you're interested 
in taking lessons, I think that they occupy several islands in the Polynesian group. 

If anyone has the innate desire to touch a former Stan Getz mouthpiece, 
see Lou Carady who, incidentally, did a great job at the K-D jam session and 
dance last Friday evening. 

F & M Took Advantage of the Breaks, Huh? 

The game last Saturday afternoon was worth hitch-hiking to Lancaster for 
and guarding the campus against raiders who were expected to return our friendly 
call last year. 

Comments proclaimed that Don DeBenedett may turn out to be another 
Hank DiJohnson for LV. Chances are that we wouldn't mind having another 
one on our hands. 

Bob Gustin, the casualty of the day's game, is carrying a broken cartilage 
around to classes with him. Everyone hopes for a speedy recovery, Bob. 

Student opinion demands that Buffy be rewarded for his T. D. by being served 
four seven-course dinners in the dining hall. 

A WORD to the Wise is Sufficient 

There have been some necessary complaints from the upperclassmen con- 
cerning the failure of several, perhaps many, Frosh in 'the wearin' of the dinks. 
It is a very important tradition which is capable of being understood by the dim- 
mest of frosh. The rule is as follows: "All Freshmen must wear their dinks and 
ties until Thanksgiving vacation except from Sunday morning until Monday at 
8:00 A. M." Consider yourselves warned. I hate myself when I have to say 
things like that.

Conserv Notes 









Now that we are already ending the second week of classes and everyone 
supposedly knows— 

who made the Glee Club, 

what everyone did over the summer (practising excluded), 

a few strange names that belong to a few strange faces, 

that the freshmen are monoplizing the practice rooms so "I might as well 

not even look for one", 
and that those lofty individualists running around are only Conserve student 

teachers desperately trying to prove to themselves that they are seniors 

and that they should walk, talk, and act a bit differently for "This is it. 


we shall enter into the core of things, 

A gracious welcome is extended to Miss Edith Morris, Mrs. Mary Funck 
Gingrich, and Mr. Robert Smith, youthful and enthusiastic additions to the faculty. 

Congrats and wishes for future luck to George Ritner, LV's '51 grad who 
won the first prize in Ted Mack's amateur finals in Madison Square Garden in 
June. George is now continuing study in New York and is a permanent member 
f Mack's Family for the Sunday night TV show. Congrats also to the faculty 
and students for making his success possible. 

News from alumni in their new situations forms glimpses of what others 
may expect in the years to come. Fred McGowan, in a school north of Reading, 
has a grand total of 6 records for use in his department. He will endeavor to 
begin an instrumental program when funds are available. Anne Shroyer, teach- 
ing first to eigth-grade vocal in Wilmington, Delaware, is lucky enough to be 
sharing an apartment with a young co-teacher who supplied practically all of the 
furnishings and owns a '51 convertible. 

Readers of September's Etude may have noticed a letter to the editor signed 
by Hilten Bennett, LV '51. Although best known as an efficiency expert and 
business manager of LA VIE, Hilten sang tenor in the Chorus and is musically 
inclined in more than one direction. In his letter he objected to a reader's criti- 
cism of a series of Wagner articles and stressed that we should judge a person 
by what he produces and not by his personal life.

Lennie Casper got himself bottled up in a test tube this year, and his ab-

the stalwart males down to earth with their ferocious drumming. The band 
doesn't dally on its way down the field. 

Last week at F. M., the group made its first appearance of the year, which 
was also its first showing under George Ruthledge, who has succeeded Bruce 

The performance in itself told the story of George's preparation and the 
band's cooperation. Everyone is looking forward to more displays of the same

Graduate Record 
Examinations Given 

The Graduate Record Examinations, 
required of applicants for admission to a 
number of graduate schools, will be ad- 
ministered at examination centers 
throughout the country four times in the 
coming year, Educational Testing Service 
has announced. During 1950-1951 neai- 
ly 10,000 students took the GRE in par- 
tial fulfillment of admission requirements 
of graduate schools which prescribed it. 

This fall candidates may take the GRE 
on Friday and Saturday, October 26 and 
27; in 1952, the dates are February 1 
and 2, May 2 and 3, August 1 and 2. 
Since the GRE is not required by all 
graduate schools, ETS advises each stu 
dent to inquire of his prospective school 
whether or not he is expected to take the 
test and, if so, on which dates. 

The GRE tests offered in these nation- 
wide programs include a test of general 
scholastic ability, tests of general 
achievement in six broad fields of under- 
graduate study, and advanced level tests 
o r achievement in various subject matter 
fields. According to ETS, candidates are 
pc mitted several options among these 

Application forms and a Bulletin of 
Information, which provides details of 
registration and administrations, as well 
as sample questions, may be obtained 
from advisers or directly from Educa- 
tional Testing Service, P. O. Box 592, 
Princeton, N. J., or P. O. Box 9896, Los 
Feliz Station, Los Angeles 27, California. 
A completed application must reach the 
ETS office at least two weeks before the 
date of the administration for which the 
candidate is applying. 

acquaint all men students with the pro- 
gram. This summary will also serve to 
familiarize all students with the rules 
and regulations concerning the use of 
Lynch Memorial Physical Education 

The program of physical education for 
men is divided into the following four 
main branches: inter-collegiate athletics, 
intra-mural athletics, required physical 
education, and recreational activities. 
These four branches will be described 
briefly in the following paragraphs. 

Lebanon Valley College enters teams 
in inter-collegiate competition in foot- 
ball, varsity and junior varsity basket- 
ball, baseball, and track and field. All 
bonafide men students except transfer 
students are eligible to play on the vari- 
ous teams. All eligible students arc urged 
to try out for any or all teams. Watch 
the bulletin board in Lynch Memorial 
for all announcements concerning initial 
practices, etc. 

All competition in the intra-muarl pro- 
gram is by classes. In the activities in 
which individuals compete, the winners 
scores are credited to the classes of 
which they are members. Intra-mural 
leagues and tournaments are going to be 
held during the 1951-52 season in touch 
football, volleyball, day student and dor- 
mitory basketball, singles and doubles in 
handball, badminton, and softball. Scor- 
ing for each league or tournament is on 
a basis of 10 points for first place, 5 
points for second place, 3 points for third 
place and one point for fourth place. The 
points are awarded to each class in each 
event. The class having the most points 
at the end of the year is declared the 
intra-mural champion. The class of 1951 
was last year's champion. 

All freshmen and sophomores are re- 
quired to take physical education two 
hours a week. The aim of these required 
courses is not only to aid the physical de- 
velopment of the student, but also to at- 
tempt to interest the student in some 
form of sports activity in which he will 

graduation from college. Check schedule 
charts for time and day of meeting of 
these classes. 

The athletic fields and Lynch Memo- 
rial are available at all times during the 
day for recreational sports acitivities for 
groups and inidividuals. Any parts of 
the building and fields may be used ex- 
cept those being used for scheduled class- 
es and practices. We want very much to 
have the students avail themselves of 
these facilities. Special permission from 
the staff of the physical education de- 
partment must be received to use any of 
the facilities at night. Use the buildings 
and field hard. Use them, but please 
don't abuse them. 

There are two very important rules 
concerning the use of Lynch Memorial 
which must be followed by everyone. 
The first rule is that no one is permitted 
to participate in any activity in the build- 
ing unless he is properly attired. By 
proper attire we mean gym shoes and 
either shorts or sweat clothing. The sec- 
ond rule is that smoking is permitted 
only in the main corridor of the first 

Facilities for the storing of gym cloth- 
ing are available in baskets in the mam 
locker room. The locks on these baskets 
are rented to the students for 25c a year. 
A deposit of $1.75 is returned to the stu- 
dent at the end of the year. No locks 
are permttted on any dress lockers in the 
main locker room. 

This is only a very brief summary of 
the program. Further questions can be 
answered by the physical education staff. 

Lebanon Valley College played its 
416th varsity football game when it met 
F. & M. in the season-opener against F. 
& M. this year. 

In 1938, Lebanon Valley's backfield 
ace, Ed Kress, threw 13 scoring passes 
and scored 4 touchdowns himself in ad- 
dition to doing all the team's punting.

How the heck can he drink when he's dead?

Dutch's Dutchmen Dazzle Dips With 25-6 Drubbing 

Sorrentino Scores Two 
As Dips Are Surprised 


In Lebanon Valley's football locker 
room there was a headline on display 
all last week informing its readers that 
Franklin and Marshall was favored 
over the Flying Dutchmen by 13 points 
in their grid meeting of the past Satur- 
day. The entire Blue and White team 
must have taken some good looks at 
the newspaper clipping but apparently 
none of them paid too much attention 
to it. For on the memorable Saturday 
that has just passed, Coach Ralph Ricker 
took his pigskinners over to Lancaster 
and there they shattered to shreds the 
Associated Press' prediction and every- 
one else's who picked F&M in that 
meeting by beautifully battering the 
Diplomats before 6.000 sun-drenched 
fans at F&M's Williamson Field. The 
scoreboard at the end of the game was 
a picture worth ten thousand words as 
it read, "F&M-6, Visitors-25." Without 
a doubt, no team could have been more 
happy to be "visitors" than the blue 
and white clad team from Annville that 
afternoon. Not only was it wonder- 
ful to have a victory over their time 
honored rival in an opening game, but 
victory was that much more sweeter as 
the Lancaster Countians nine game, un- 
beaten and untied win streak came to 
an end. 

The entire Valley aggregation 
deserves the highest praise for its 
fine teamwork which was wonder- 
fully executed as the whole Blue 
and White crew played in such a 
manner that only the dullest foot- 
ball mind could not observe their 
ferocious waging of the grid battle 
and determination to win the 
game. This heads-up ball playing 
can be attested by the fact that 
they recovered three out of the 
four F&M fumbles, turning one into 
a touchdown; intercepted four Dip 
passes, one of which also resulted 
in a six-pointer; and became the 
first team in two years to block a 
F&M punt. 

It was just one of these acts of de- 
termined ball playing that gave the 
Valley its first touchdown of the game. 
John Buffamoyer, who has been switch- 
ed from backfield to center, recovered 
Wally Witmer's fumble on the F&M 16. 
From here the Blue and White drove 
to the six where F&M held and took 
over. Werst punted out to the thirty 
and LV's sophomore defensive back, 
Dick Mussleman, took it back four 
yards. Co-captain Fred Sample picked 
up four and then Sharon Hill's gift to 
Lebanon Valley, Lou Sorrentino, threw 
to Joe Oxley for a first down. Ralph 
Giordano and fast-stepping Don De- 
Benedett carried to the four from where 
Sorrentino called the old bootleg play 
which consisted of the quarterback tak- 
ing the ball and going through left tackle 
for a score. Ted Lauer's try for the 
extra point was wide. 

F&M retaliated in the second period 
and tied the ball game up at 6-6 when 
the Dip's Steve Michissin recovered a 
Valley fumble on the Dutchmen 35. 
A five yeard penalty for offside aided 
the F&M cause and then Kenny Davis 
took a pitchout, going off his own 
right end to the Valley four. On the 
next play he hit the center of the line 

for F&M's only score of the game. 
Michissin missed the point try. 

The Rickermen came right back 
however, as Frank DeAngelis set up the 
second Valley TD by recovering Jerry 
Faber's fumble on the LV 45. Sorren- 
tino then set the spectators agog by 
heaving a thirty-two yard aerial to De- 
Benedett who had to snatch it out of 
the hands of a F&M man. From here 
Sorrentino used short, over-the-line, pin- 
point passes to Oxley and the Ricker- 
men found theselves knocking on pay- 
land's door. On third down Sorrentino 
eluded a host of would be F&M tack- 
lers and although chased back and run- 
ning to the right, away from Valley 
receivers in the end zone, he cut loose 
with a toss which sent the Valley side 
into a happy roar as Sample pulled it 
down in the stripped area for a touch- 
down. Lauer's kick for the bonus mark- 
er was good and the Valley was out 
front 13-6, the score staying that way 
till half-time. 

Not being able to score in the third 
quarter the Dutchmen made up for it 
by blocking Werst's kick in the final 
period and taking over on the F&M 26. 
Sorrentino to Oxley worked for a first 
down and then Sorrentino combined 
with DeBenedett to move it to the four 
for another first. Sorrentino then baf- 
fled the Dips again as he pulled the same 
bootleg play and romped into paydirt 
to make it 19-6. Lauer missed the try 
for the extra point, but it didn't matter, 
for the homesters were now stunned 
with the thought that all was lost and 
only a complete letdown on the Valley's 
part would give them even the remotest 
chance of a score. The careful, cal- 
culating Sorrentino kept it down to a 
running game for it was just a matter of 
time before F&M's win streak would be 
no more. 

With time rapidly running out F&M's 
gang began to open up their aerial at- 
tack even more but it severely back- 
fired as Buffamoyer intercepted one of 
Davis' passes on the F&M 26 and re- 
sembling one of those Russian tanks that 
tried to beat the Yanks to Berlin, churn- 
ed down the turf with the aid of fine 
blocking and fell into the end zone for 
a score. That was it at 25-6 but F&M in- 
sisted on passing and two more of the 
Dip aerials were intercepted, one by 
Mussleman, the other by Lauer. The lat- 
ter raced the ball up the field, deep in 
F&M territory, and there the contest 
ended as the Dutchmen were in scoring 
position again.

Ricker and Fox Serve 
As LVC Dutchmasters 

ing his second season as head football 
coach at Lebanon Valley College. Last 
year "Dutch" compiled a record of four 
victories against four defeats, with his 
Valleymen winning over Mt. St. Mary's, 
Moravian, Muhlenberg, and P.M.C., and 
dropping games to F. & M., Albright, 
W. Maryland, and Scranton. 

Before taking over the helm as pilot of 
the Flying Dutchmen, Ricker was head 
football coach at Dickinson for four 
years, where his teams won 18 games, 
lost 10, and tied 3. 

A native of Carlisle, Pa., and a gradu- 
ate of Penn State (B.A., M.A.), "Dutch" 
has behind him a background of 20 yeais 
of coaching and teaching experience. He 
has coached at West Chester State 
Teachers College, Abington Township 
High School, and Lock Haven High, es- 
tablishing a record of 80% wins at the 
latter institution. 

In addition to his coaching duties at 
Lebanon Valley, Ricker serves as assis'- 
ant professor of history. 

DICK FOX, Valley's husky, hearty as- 
sistant coach, is a product of Lebanon 
High School and Temple University. 
Dick made his coaching debut at Leba- 
non Valley four years ago, when he sign 
ed on as terminal tutor under Andy 

As a varsity wingman at Temple, Dick 
played under three different coaches in 
three years, and established a reputation 
as one of the best defensive ends ever 
produced at that institution. Following 
his graduation, he played on and coach- 
ed several Army service teams, and was a 
member of the Army track team that 
participated in the Olympic games in Ja-

Valley Eleven To Face 
Army Team On Saturday 

After neatly polishing off Franklin and 
Marshall in the season's opener, Coach 
Ralph Ricker's Flying Dutchmen of the 
gridiron will aim for their second vic- 
tory of the season on Saturday afternoon 
when they meet the comparatively un- 
known Indiantown Gap Military Reser- 
vation football team at the Gap. The 
footballers of that military base have 
been somewhat publicity shy and if it 
were not for their camp newspaper, The 
Tomahawk, practically nothing would be 
known of them. 

The Red Devils, as they are called, 
epened their season on Saturday, Septem- 
ber 15, by meeting the White Hill Indus- 
trial School team. Reports from the game 
tend to make one believe that either In- 
diantown is just bursting with grid talem, 
or that White Hill was pathetic since the 
final score was 58-0 in favor of the mili- 
ary. The statistics were overwhelmingly 
in khaki as Indiantown Gap gained 382 
yards from scrimmage and White Hill 
wound up with minus three. In the first 
down department the Gap team register- 
ed 12 while White Hill's Terriers made 

one. As for punting, the soldiers had 
very little of that to do and punted but 
once, and then their Manny Gregg boot- 
ed 44 yards. 

According to the story, one Mike Mac- 
cioli was the big gun for the Indiantown 
Gap squad as he accounted for three 
touchdowns. Coach Helm's Gap gridder$ 
also have Barry Dietz, former Moravian 
end, in their lineup. Valley fans who re- 
member Dietz, will realize that Barry will 
be playing football against the Valley [ 0r 
the fifth time. Dietz scored one of the 
Gap's six-pointers against White Hill. a s 
for other standouts, linemen Nunzio Po- 
lichene and "Tiger" Cantafic drew favor- 
able comment from the Gap coaching 

Aside from this account, that is the 
story on Lebanon Valley's Saturday foe. 
When it comes to manpower, they will 
doubtedly be difficult to match since they 
have men galore and this will be a decid- 
ed disadvantage to the none too large 
Valley team. On top of this, lineman 
Bob Gustin is hampered with a torn 
leg cartilege and will not be seeing any

Five Alumni Honored 
As Outstanding 

Five distinguished Central Pennsylva- 
nians were honored by Lebanon Valley 
College Tuesday morning at a convoca- 
tion of the student body as a part of the 
college's program celebrating Pennsylva- 
nia Week. 

The five men, all alumni of Lebanon 
Valley, were cited for their contributions 
to the field of higher education. They 
are: Dr. Merle M. Hoover, a native of 
Chambersburg, is chairman of advisors, 
School of General Studies, Columbia 
University; Dr. James Leathern, a native 
of Lebanon, associate professor of zool- 
ogy, Rutgers University; Dr. Bruce M. 
Metzger, a native of Middletown, asso- 
ciate professor of New Testament, 
Princeton Theological Seminary; Dr. 
David Herr Rank, a native of Annville, 
research professor of physics at Perm 
State College; and Dr. Carl F. Schmidt, 
a native of Lebanon, professor of phar- 
macology, University of Pennsylvania. 

The Rev. Pierce E. Swope, pastor of 
St. Stephen's Evangelical and Reformed 
Church of Lebanon, addressed the stu- 
dent convocation on "The Contributions 
of the Pennsylvania Dutch." 

Also, as part of its Pennsylvania Week 
Program, the college will stress in class- 
rooms during the week the role of Penn- 
sylvania in the nation's history. 

FTA Begins Activities; 
Four Attend Conference 

Lebanon Valley's Future Teachers of 
America began its fall activities with an 
organizational meeting on October 2. 
Members of the executive council were 
introduced, and they explained the 
monthly programs which are planned for 
the coming year. Included are a tour 
through the PSEA building in Harrisburg 
and an address by Senator Fred Hare. 
Later the group plans to sell wall plaques 
which have various campus scenes depict- 
ed on them. 

Dottie Bontreger, Nancy Myers, Bill 
Shoppell, and DeWitt Zuse represented 
Lebanon Valley at the Southern District 
Conference of FTA in York on October 
12. Bill Shoppell attended the sectional 
meeting on draft deferment at the confer- 
ence and gave a report on it to the dele- 
gates at the general meeting before the 
conference adjourned. 

The November meeting of L. V.'s FTA 
will feature marimba music by Kenneth 
Keiser. Reports will be given by those 
who attended the York conference, and 
four seniors will relate some of their 
experiences in student teaching. Refresh- 
ments will also be served. 

Members of the executive council of 
Lebanon Valley's George D. Gossard 
chapter of FTA include Fred Sample, 
president; Ed Tesnar, vice-president; 
Nancy Myers, treasurer; Lois Adams, 
corresponding secretary; Ruth Sheaffer, 
recording secretary; Elaine Barron, so- 
cial chairman; Paul Edwards, publicity 
chairman; Bill Shoppell, program chair- 
man; and Dottie Bontreger and Ruth 
Marie Stambach, members at large. Pro- 
fessor Byron L. Harriman and Professor 
Gilbert D. McKlveen are advisors to this 

Lebanon Valley College's plans, hopes, 
and dreams of many years duration will 
become a reality at 10:15 o'clock Satur- 
day morning with the dedication of the 
college's new half-million dollar physical 
education building. 

THE NEW BUILDING, completed 
last spring, will be named the Lynch 
Memorial Physical Education Building in 
honor of the late Dr. Clyde A. Lynch, 
past president of the college, who played 
such a prominent part in the fund-raising 
campaign for the building. 

DEDICATION of the building will be 
made by Bishop G. E. Epp, bishop of the 
Eastern Area of the Evangelical United 
Brethren Church, and the dedication 
prayer will be offered by Dr. D. E. 
Young, superintendent of the East Penn- 
sylvania Conference of the Evangelical 
United Brethren Church. The program 
will also include the presentation of the 
flag pole by Mr. Bruce D. Wiser, presi- 
dent of the class of 1951, and its accept- 
ance by Dr. Frederic K. Miller. The 
building itself will be presented to the 
college by Mr. I. G. Weidman, repre- 
senting Rice and Weidman, Contractors; 
and the acceptance of the building will 
be handled by Dr. E. N. Frankhousei, 
president of the Board of Trustees. The 
Lebanon Valley College Band, under the 
direction of Mr. E. P. Rutledge, will 
participate in the program and the invo- 
cation will be given by Dr. W. A. Wilt, 
college pastor. 

NEARLY 1,000 PEOPLE took part in 
the fund-raising campaign for the new 
gymnasium, which was conducted under 
the chairmanship of Mr. E. D. Williams 
of Annville. Of the $550,000.00 raised in 
the 4-year campaign, $225,000 was raised 
by the East Pa. Conference of the E. U. 
B. Church, $150,000 by the Pa. Confer- 
ence, $50,000 by the alumni, $50,000 
from Lebanon County and vicinity, and 
$75,000 through over-subscriptions and 
special gifts. 

ING is a main gymnasium with a seating 
capacity of 2,000, an auxiliary gym, two 
handball courts, five locker rooms, staff 
offices, an individual sports room, a phy- 
sical correction room, and laundry and 
drying rooms.

Prof Laughlin Comments 
on Tour and British Festival 

"The real signifance of the Festival of Britain lies not so much in the gigan- 
tic South Bank Exhibition and the Pleasure Gardens featured in London, but 
rather in the activities of the small villages and hamlets. In preparation for 
these festivals the townspeople scrutinized their history; they discovered facts and 
customs that had been buried for years. They recreated 200 years of Britain. 
Obscure facts, ancient dances, forgotten manuscripts, and old family shields were 
brought out and proudly displayed to fellow countrymen and tourists." Mrs. 
Laughlin, head of the History Department of Lebanon Valley College, spent 
most of her spare time visiting many of these festivals in miniature. 

Mrs. Laughlin reports that the South Bank featured a pavillion, the Lion 
and the Unicorn, in which English wit poked fun at England and at Englishmen 
and which was a very popular attraction. The customs, oddities, and pecularities 
of the dress and speech of the British Isles were held up to examination and 
often to ridicule. 

"The architecture of the entire display was modern. The Festival Hall, 
where concerts were conducted each night, is acoustically perfect. The replica 
of the 1851 Crystal Palace is streamlined, modern, all glass construction. It 
made a dramatic contrast with the pageants conducted a century later." 

"The Gathering of the Clans at Edinborough, Scotland, the first since the 
days of Bonnie Prince Charlie, featured sixty bagpipe bands. Each clan had 
its own tent. The intense rivalry made it impossible for the clans to enter the 
huge field in orderly parade fashion. A MacKenzie refused to be preceded by 
a McCullough. As a result the clans converged upon the center of the field where 
they took the salute from the Lord High Constable of Scotland, the Countess 
of Errol. Each evening, a concert, called the Tatto on the Rock, was presented 
from the large Castle of Edinborough in honor of the soldier lost by Scotland 
in her many wars." 

"The theatres at Stratford and London were especially rich in their pre- 
sentations. Laurence Olivier and Vivian Leigh appeared in Anthony and Cleo- 
patra. The universities turned out their treasures and displayed priceless books, 
documents, paintings, and manuscripts. 


After the end of her stay in Great Britain, Mrs. Laughlin spent three weeks 
in August touring Italy. At Venice, in addition to catching a glimpse of Wins- 
ton Churchill, she witnessed the Regatta that began all regattas and was delight- 
ed with the parade of the costumed gondoliers which represented the dress of 
the past 700 years. It was pointed out to her that each gondola's prow is adorned 
with a doge's cap and the three keys to the city. In addition, each gondola 
is painted black as a sign of mourning for the loss of independence by Venice at 
the hands of Napoleon in 1798. 

Outstanding in her trip was the town of Perugia whose Etruscan walls are 
the most beautiful and best preserved to be found today, and the Milan Cathe- 
dral, which, to her, far surpasses the beauty and grace of other celebrated cathe- 

Observing events and buildings in Venice, Naples, Rome, Milan, Pisa, and 
Florence, Mrs. Laughlin was struck by the amazing amount of reconstruction 
which has been accomplished by the Italian people. The towns and cities of 
Italy are for the most part neat and little scarred by the ravages of war. 

The Sixth Column 

How many times since you've been back on campus have you heard your- 
self asking— Now what'll I do? The answers will be varied, of course, because 
of the fact that some of us are slightly more ambitious than others. However, 
if ever you're stumped again about something to occupy your leisure time, look 
over the following list of words and see if you can't find something suitable: 
class meetings, Pol Sci Club, the gym, the hockey field (interesting at any hour), 
Washington Hall, the lab, La Vie work, an unaswered letter, that girl in South 
Hall, and many other miscellaneous key words conducive to the solution of the 
problem — what can I do on campus? The moral is: why sleep in the dorm when 
you can do that in class? 


The monsters which hobbled around to classes last Thursday were nothing 
more than Delphian and Clio pledges so you can come out of hiding now — 
they've gone for another year. In case you've lost any sleep over the idea in- 
volved, the theme of the Delphian initiation was "the Flapper Age". 

The ghis weren't the only characters with an overdose of ugly pills for the 
day. Have you ever had the experience of meeting a worked — over Kalo pledge 
in the dark on the night of informal initiation? 'Nuff said. 


You can place your bets here as to which class will pull which into the 
Quittie on Saturday morning. Chet Snedecker and Chet Snavely are getting 
the big, hefty Sophomore team organized. In case you're planning a little 
sabotage, that's fine — it will add to the excitement! 

For statistics sake, may I add that the class of '53 was the last frosh class 
to win. Now don't be bitter. 


No matter in what tone of voice or frame of mind it's said, the word 
'homecoming' is a friendly word. You'll see on campus, people about whom 
you've heard the upperclassmen talk, people who return each year to Lebanon 
Valley College in order to observe its progress and to show their gratitude. Years 
from now you will come back and say to the person beside you at the alumni ban- 
quet, "I was here when the Lynch Memorial Gym was dedicated." And he will 
say, "What a thrill that must have been." 

You'll also have the opportunity to see Dotty Witmer crowned Pennsylvania 
Week Queen at the LV-Moravian football game on Saturday afternoon. Con- 
gratulations are also in store for her runner-up Darlene Moyer, a sophomore. 
Guess you know in which classes the beauty on campus is upheld! . . . Ouch. 

And then the L-Club Dance . . . it'll be more terrific than ever 
this year in the new gym. Women may grab escorts for the dance as they pass 
North Hall all this week. You think I'm kidding? It's being done everyday. 

Come heck or high water, have a great time the whole weekend. 

The Sophomore Class is working on the combination of a hayride and dance 
for the weekend of November 2 and 3. Getting on the stick and asking that 
girl wouldn't be a bad idea, because all reservations for the hayride must be 
made by Thursday, October 25. To all those who like to . . . ah, sing, yes, 
stags may sign up for the hay ride, too. 


The aftermath of the Political Science Club meeting left new members with 
their mouths wide open in awe due to the agile handling of parlimentary pro- 
cedure by none other than the great Sammy Yeagley. Evelyn Toser, president, 
Joe Shemeta, and Lucie Portier made the word 'discussion' look like the under- 
statement of the year. That's quite the organization. 


What's the Dames Club? Well, it's not the new feminine drinking club on 
campus . . . tea, I mean. The organization merely consists of all faculty wives 
— so if your husband isn't a prof. . . . too bad. 

With all your questions answered and all the activities slated for you, I have 
but one thing to say: . . . "Di dee di dee di, It's not my velise." (For further 
explanation, see Jim Zangrilli.) 

For God, For Country, and For Yale 

We understand that some of the Valley people, about ten strong, really had 
themselves a good time in little ole New York after the Upsala game. Visiting a 
metropolitan area college hangout, the localites really enjoyed themselves with other 
Joe and Jane Colleges. Nothing like singing the Whiffenpoof Song with a few Yale 

men, eh, Ayers? Bobby had those glasses raised on high and we don't mean 

eye glasses. The new cry: on to Joe King's!

Neidig Addresses 
Educators' Convention 

Dr. Howard A. Neidig, professor o* 
chemistry at Lebanon Valley College, de- 
livered an address at the 26th Annual 
Convention of the Southern District of 
the Pennsylvania State Educational As- 
sociation, held at the York Senior High 
School, October 12. 

The theme of the convention was "Ed- 
ucating Today's Children for Tomor- 
row's World." Dr. Neidig spoke on "The 
Use of the Laboratory in Chemistry 

This year, as before, a period is be- 
ing set aside each week for personal 
devotions. The basement of the Col- 
lege Church will be open from 11:30 
A. M. to 12:00 noon each Thursday 
for those students who wish to use it. 
These devotional periods will provide 
an atmosphere suitable for private 
meditation and prayer. The Life Woik 
Recruits organization, sponsor of the 
services, will provide a musical back- 
ground as an inspirational setting. 
These periods of worship can be 
soul-refreshing experiences if each of 
us will make them so. 

The Student-Faculty Council has held 
quite a few meetings since school first 
started, and has started the ball rolling 
as far as activities are concerned. The 
first major achievement was the approval 
and adoption of the social calendar for 
the year. It was also decided that S.F.C. 
would met every other Thursday at 7:30 
P. M., for the duration of the football 
season, after which time a new daie 
could be set if the group feels it will be 

This year S.F.C. is attempting a 
new plan in its organizational set-up. The 
representatives will be composed of the 
presidents of the various organizations. 
This was advocated by President Sample 
with the belief that it would result in a 
better-informed student body, and thus 
lead to better-functioning S.F.C. 

At the last meeting, Dean Hayes re- 
quested that all organizations who have 
not yet submitted a constitution to S.F.C. 
do so as soon as possible. He also re- 
quested that any group which desires to 
plan some sort of special activity should 
check with him on the date before pro- 
ceeding further. 

The Junior Class now has plans under 
way for a Parents Day dance on Novem- 
ber tenth. They are planning to maice 
this a big affair. The committee in charge 
of the dance is headed by Joyce Ham- 
mock; those assisting her will be Don 
Hedgecock, Dick Hornberger, Kenneth 
Keiser, and Robert Kaufman. 

There will be junior class meetings on 
the first Thursday of each month in the 
Administration building. At the next 
meeting class dues will be discussed. 

The committees for the junior prom 
are as follows: decoration, Jane 
McMurtie, chairlady; Band Com- 
mittee consists of Eugene Tritch, chair- 
man, Neil Timberline, John Ralston, Flo 
Souder, Kenneth Keiser; Program Com- 
mittee: Don Hedgecock, chairman, Glo- 
ria Gulliver, Allen Koppenhaver, and 
Grace Frick; Poster Committee: Harry 
Graham, chairman, Jean Staley, Joan 
Gilbert, and Leon Miller; Stage Commit- 
tee: Ralph Giordano, chairman, John 
Buffamoyer, Al Carelli, Bill Vought, Bob 
Gustin, Dan McGary, Bob Tarantola, 
Frank DeAngelis, and Robert Kaufman; 
Ticket Committee: Don Kreider, chair- 
man, Mark Heberling, David Jauss, 
Grace Mohn, and Phyllis Barnhart. 

Newspapers from large universities 
like the Iowa State Daily and The Idaho 
Argonaut, to small college publications 
such as The Susquehanna and The A». 
brightian, are received in the LA VIE 
office each week. This column contains 
interesting items collected from these ex- 
changes which picture campus hf e 
throughout the nation. 

The Cavalier Daily reports that the 
Student Legal Forum at the University 
of Virginia, which sponsors addresses by 
distinguished authorities, opened its lec- 
ture series last month with a lecture by 
Cyrus S. Ching. Mr. Ching, a native of 
Canada, is well known in the United 
States as chairman of the Wage Stabili- 
zation Board and director of the Federal 
Mediation and Conciliation Service. 

The Campus Reflector contains arti- 
cles, stories, and poems written by the 
students at Shippensburg State Teachers 
College. The editorial in the September 
issue, which is dedicated to freshmen at 
S. S. T. C, ends with "Don't let college 
get you down, just pitch right in and 
make a success of it . . . We've never 
lost a Freshmen class yet!" 

Last week the library at Susquehanna 
University in Selinsgrove featured two 
displays of interest to art enthusiasts. Ac- 
cording to The Susquehanna, an exhi- 
bition of wood-block colors prints by 
Luigi Rist of Newark, New Jersey, illus- 
trated one of the oldest methods of print- 
ing known to man. The other was scenes 
of the American Revolution which were

The Albrightian reports that plans for 
a Pretzel Bowl game are nearing com- 
pletion. The game will be played on Sat- 
urday, November 24, in Reading between 
Albright and another football team 
"from an unidentified Eastern Pennsyl- 
vania College." The game is being spon- 
sored by the Shriners for the benefit of 
their hospital for crippled children.

The new "twist" to the antics of the baton twirlers at the football games 
this year is the showmanship of a freshman from Lititz, Ben Lutz. Surprisingly, 
Ben is beginning his twirling career here at college, having heretofore "hid his 
light under a bushel". Fans of opponent teams are joining the fans of Lebanon 
Valley in their admiration of his skill. 

Two other newcomers have filled the gaps in the twirling line. They are 
Barbara Eckenroth from Mohnton, and Janet Schaeffer from Lititz. Nancy 
Risdon, Dorie Zarker, and Marian Sentz are the three veteran strutters. 


During a recent meeting of the Chorus, each class selected representatives to 
form a committee to begin planning for the Annual Formal, biggest social event 
of the year for Conservites. Chosen were seniors Julia Thatcher and Mel Schiff, 
co-chairmen; Ruth Evans and John Ralston, juniors; Carol Johnstone and Dave 
Council, sophomores; and Nancy Myers and George Seyfert, freshmen. 

Last year a terrific LV's A-Poppin' show preceded the event and was very 
successful in helping to cut the expense. There is no reason why such entertain- 
ment couldn't at least be equalled this year. Seniors especially should feel a 
responsibility toward the project. However, suggestions and ideas of all kinds 
from everyone will be welcome by the members of the committee. 


Now that the height of the fly season is past, what do statistics show? The 
majority of those who practise evidently are quite stable and don't lose their 
tempers easily, because, although annoyed somewhat by the flying missiles, they 
only engage in dodging, scratching, and swinging at with the arms in a purely 
defensive manner. This cuts their efficiency of practise down only about 10%. In 
the minority are those who take time out to kill the pests. These ambitious souls 
lose 25% of their time. Both groups are hindered because of fatigue. I suggest 
for the next season that a supply of swatters be distributed in the various rooms, 
if only to prevent wear and tear on the music. 


Leopold Damrosch, during a rehearsal, was startled by hearing a loud blast 
from the tuba during a pause. He rebuked the player, who replied, "Ach, mein 
Gott, it was a fly! And I played him!" 


Some people are always "fiddlin' around"; others are more likely to "toot 
their own horns". Some go around "drumming up" trade. Others are more in- 
clined to "soft-pedal" their activities. Actresses "pull out al the stops" and also 
play in a "muted" style. Some people have "lots of brass"; others are more com- 
fortable in "low keys". In all activities we find both "harmony" and "discord". 
That's because so many people are always "harping" on things.

Society Row 


Delphian held their annual tea on 
Thursday afternoon, October 4, from 
3-5 P. M. in Delphian Hall. The theme 
of the tea was patterned after the Flap- 
per days of the Roaring Twenties, and 
included in this theme was a display of 
accessories which were fashionable dur- 
ing this period. Those who poured were 
Dean Dent, Mrs. Fairlamb, Mrs. Miller, 
and Mrs. Donmoyer. Through the after- 
noon music was furnished by Mardia 
i.Ielroy and Carol Johnstone. 

On Thursday, October 11, Delphian 
lr!d their informal initiation. This, as 
the tea and program, was carried out on 
the Flapper theme. On Thursday the 
pledges were to be seen around the 
campus in their short skirts, their middie 
blouses, and rolled down stockings. An- 
other outstanding feature of the initiation 
was the Flapper chorus lines which were 
to be seen in North Hall during the meal 
hours. On Thursday evening the girls 
were officially initiated into Delphian. 

The formal installation will take place 
in the near future. 


On October 11 Kalo held its informal 
initiation. Thirty-two pledges were re- 
ceived in the organization this year. 

Formal initiation will be held at the 

next regular meeting. Pledgees should 
watch for notices, as it is necessary to be 
there to be received into Kalo. 

A Kalo smoker was held on October 
4 for the benefit of pledgees and those 
interested in meeting members. Cigarettes 
and refreshments were distributed. Jim 
Zangrilli put on a skit, and along with 
the other officers extended a hearty wel- 
come to those interested in joining Kalo. 
Three movies were shown to conclude 
the program. 


The Philokosmian and Clionian Socie- 
ties of Lebanon Valley College voted in 
joint session to adopt a policy of each 
pledgee participating in some construct- 
ive work, either for the benefit of the 
societies or of the school. This year, the 
pledgees of the two societies will work 
under the supervision of older members 
in renovating a room which will become 
a joint meeting hall for the two societies. 

The room, located in the basement of 
the Administration Building, will be 
cleaned, painted, and furnished by the 
two groups. Supervisors for Philo are 
Charles Blaich, Treasurer, Donaid 
Hedgecock, Vice-President, and Harry 
Hall. The Clio committee is composed 
of Joan Ringle, Corresponding Secretary, 
Lois Adams, Recording Secretary, and 
Lucie Portier.

Jewish Temple to a Mosque and its sub- 
sequent development, he photgraphed an

the sections he showed the complete tran- 
sition of the building. 

Mr. Haboush was born in 1892 on the 
western shore of the Sea of Galilee. He 
and his family are Christians; they are 
direct descendants of the early Christians 
of the Bible. He received his formal, 
advanced education in Switzerland where 
he majored in archaeology and historic- 
ity of Biblical literature. Since that time 
he has become an interpreter of the East- 
ern mind to the Western world. This 
activity has caused him to appear on 
many lecture and Chautauqua platforms 
with men like William Jennings Bryan, 
Akeley, the scientist, and Stefansson, the 
Arctic explorer. 

Mr. Haboush believes that there is a 
definite trend toward agnosticism along 
the Eastern Seaboard. In the West, how- 
ever, he finds that the people are mucn 
more progressive, more enthusiastic, and 
more vigorously interested in religion. 
As a result, there are many more sects 
along the Pacific Coast than in the East. 

New Advisors For 
Religious Activities 

The Faculty Committee on Religious 
Activities met recently and decided upon 
a plan to divide the religious activities 
on campus. Under the new plan, Pro- 
fessor Carl Y. Ehrhart will act as advisor 
ot the SCA. Rev. Maynard Sparks will 
have charge of the Chapel programs; Dr. 
Richie will direct the Religious Coordi- 
nating Committee which conducts Re- 
ligious Emphasis Week. Dr. Wilt will 
assist Dr. Sparks with the Life Work Re- 
cruits. Mr. L. Franks is social chairman. 
The other members of the committee 
are Dr. Stonecipher, Miss Myers, ana 
Paul Stambach. This committee will hold 
its second meeting October 18. 

At the October 15 SCA Cabinet meet- 
ing, Melvin Sponsler was elected as Sun- 
day School Chairman to replace Bernard 
Fogle, who resigned because of pastoral 

Chemistry Club 
Names Committees 

The Chem Club's first business meet- 
ing of the year was held on Thursday, 
Sept. 27. There was no old business, but 
several important items came up under 
new business. Of first importance was 
the question of dues. It was decided that 
they should stay the same as last year, 
that is, $1.50, to be paid before the 
Thanksgiving vacation. 

Sterling Strause then appointed 
committees for the year. They are: 
Film Committee, George Knoble, 
chairman; Editor of Literature, Bob 
Hoffsommer; La Vie reporter, Harry 
Brown; Publicity Committee, Joseph Ber- 
ing, Chairman; Refreshment Committee, 
Charles Blaich; Field Trip Committee, S. 
S. Macut, Chairman; Dinner-Dance Com- 
mittee, Warren Early, Chairman; Clean- 
up Committee, Abe Leaman, Chairman; 
Executive Committee, President presiding 
as Chairman; Student Affiliate Coordi- 
nating Committee, Donald Hedgecock, 
Chairman. It was also mentioned that 
lab aprons and handbooks would be sold 
again this year by the Chem Club. The 
meeting was then adjourned, after which 
2 movies were shown: Kingdom of Plas- 
tics and Jet Propulsion.

Valley Victimizes Vikings; Moravians Next For Valleymen 

Sample, Shonosky Score 

By Jim Pacy 

The Flying Dutchmen of Lebanon 
Valley continued their dominance over 
Upsala College football teams on Satur- 
day afternoon when they zeroed the 
Upsalaites 14-0 at Viking Field in East 
Orange, New Jersey. The victory over 
the Norsemen marked the fifth win over 
the Jersey institution without any defeats 
for the Blue and White in a series dat- 
ing back to 1937. 

After a first quarter which saw both 
squads handle the ball to no scoring 
gain the Flying Dutchmen registered a 
touchdown in the second period when 
they took over midway in the quarter 
and marched 55 yards for a score. 
During this downfield jog it was the 
ever reliable arm of sophomore quarter- 
back Lou Sorrentino that kept the Dutch- 
men on the march as Lou hit Joe Oxley 
with three aerials to eat up the major 
portion of the yardage. Upsala held 
on their own ten, but when fourth down 
rolled around, Sorrentino found co-cap- 
tain Freddy Sample in the end zone and 
heaved the pigskin to him for the initial 
marker. George Cardone kicked the 
point and injury-riddled Lebanon Valley 
led 7-0. 

From there on the staunch Valley line 
consistently squelched any attempts to 
score by the Blue and Grey and Upsala 
kept finding itself stymied whenever in 
Dutchmen territory. In the first period 
the Jerseyites went so far as to pass on 
fourth down well within the area where 
other teams usually kick. Jack Leeds, 
a senior from Livingston, N. J., who 
spent one year here at the Valley, was 
the quarterback in Upsala's T-formation 
attack which consisted of the quarter- 
back standing to the side with his hands 
in T-position. This way either he could 
take the ball or it could be shot to the 
fullback. This however, did not fool 
the Dutchmen as much as the "up-the- 
middle" play of the Vikings where Leeds 
would hand off and one of the Norse 
backs would storm through center. The 
Viking's Joe Fortunato was the man who 
did this on most occasions and this 
bally-hooed back of the Norsemen was 
stopped quite well by the rugged Valley 
line. It was just one of those cases 
where all the Upsala football trickery 
could not get them a score. The 
alert Valley team would give no quar- 
ter and this can be attested by the fact 
that six interceptions of Upsala ozone 
attempts were recorded by the charges 
of Coach Ralph Ricker. 

One of these interceptions was good 
enough for a TD when Walt Shonosky, 
who earlier in the game made a beau- 
tiful one-handed interception, .nabbed 
one of Leeds' passes and then the pecu- 
liar happened. Shonosky took the aerial, 
ran into a mess of players and looked 
as though he was being brought down. 
Then, out of the clear blue sky he 
scampered away and with both teams 
and even the officials stunned, Walt ran 
to the end zone for a score. Cardone 
booted the PAT again and that was the 
game there.

Juniors 24, Seniors 

The Juniors, using the T,Q,L,Y,A, 
and several other unheard of or un- 
seen football formations, blasted the 
Seniors to the tune of 24-0 on Tues- 
day afternoon on the new athletic 
field. With Ralph "Lateral Eye" 
Mease officiating, the Juniors jumped 
out to an early one touchdown lead 
and then broke the Senior's big backs 
with three quick scores, the final one 
in the last minute, to romp away with 
the win. Kyle Furda was the big gun 
for the Third Year Men as his kickoff, 
straight-armed by Little Boy Pacy, 
turned the tide definitely in favor of 
the eventual winners as the Seniors 
could not keep up with the spirited 
razzle-dazzle of the Juniors. As to 
why they lost, the Seniors could only

Ricker's Charges Face 
Winless Greyhounds 

The Moravian College footballers will 
serve as the Homecoming Day opponert 
for the Flying Dutchmen this Saturday 
afternoon in the Lebanon High School 
Stadium. The Greyhounds from Bethle- 
hem will come here seeking their initial 
win of the campaign as they have been 
defeated in all four of their gridiron con- 
tests played thus far. The Moravians 
have been beaten by Lincoln, Scranton, 
Albright, and Hofstra. The game will 
mark the thirteenth between the two in- 
stitutions in a series going back to 1902. 
Since then the Blue and White from 
Annville have come out on top 9 times, 
lost twice, and one game ended in a 
scoreless tie. The Bethlehemers have 
served as homecoming foes before, the 
last time in 1949 when the Dutchmen 
spanked a "forgetful" Greyhound team 
34-13 before the pleased LV Alumni. 
By "forgetful" we are referring to the 
fact that the Moravian gridders came to 
Lebanon minus their helmets and the 
game had to be delayed until they were 
sent for and brought to Lebanon. 


































LV won 9 

Moravian won 2 
One game tied 

This year Moravian will appear under 
the tutelage of Jim Shreve, who is one 
of the more youthful coaches in the bus- 
iness. Coach Shreve graduated from Sy- 
racuse University in 1950 and while 
there he played on the Orange teams of 
Floyd Schwartzwalder. Shreve succeed- 
ed Larry Rosati at Moravian when the 
latter moved on as assistant football 
coach at Muhlenberg. 

Although the Moravian record shows 
no victories for four attempts, readeis 
should note that the squads defeating 
Moravian are good ball clubs. Scranton

is always tough and Albright is having 
one of its better seasons. A team such 
as Moravian, having a new coach, and 
being winless, could prove to be rough 
customers to handle. Not only will they 
have everything to gain and nothing to 
lose, but will undoubtedly attempt to re- 
taliate for last year's 14-8 defeat at the 
hands of Coach Ralph Ricker's Dutch- 

The Moravian offense is led by two 
passers, namely Houseknecht and P ez . 
zuto, who ranked 11th and 17th respect- 
ively in small college passing as of Octo- 
ber 5th statistics released by the Na- 
tional Collegiate Athletic Bureau. House- 
knecht, up until then, threw 25 and com- 
pleted 16 passes with no interceptions 
for 64% while Pezzuto was 14 for 26 
with 4 interceptions for 53.8%. Although 
Lebanon Valley's able Lou Sorrentino 
surpassed both these men on the statis- 
tics list, ranking 8th, the Dutchmen must 
contend with the fact that Moravian will 
try everything possible to dump them and 
these two passers can be just the needed 
Moravian weapon. 

Four Valley Regulars Injured 

The Valley will enter the fray minus 
the services of four regulars. Guard "Bee 
Gee" Gustin is still on the injured list 
waiting for his leg ligaments to heal as 
is tackle Nick Bova, who sat out the Up- 
sala game because of an ankle injury. 
Tackle Paul Edwards is slowly coming 
around after suffering chest injuries in 
the Indlantown Gap game while half- 
back Ted Lauer will be sidelined for a 
few more weeks with a shoulder separa- 
tion. Edwards has seen limited action, 
while Bova is doing light work outs in 
an attempt to be ready for action against 
Albright. Coach Ricker had Walt Sho- 
nosky playing as an offensive halfback 
in Lauer's place against Upsala on Sat- 
urday and lineman Frank DeAngelis saw 
extra duty because of the injuries in the 
line. If the Blue and White continues to 
flash the determination, fight, and spirit, 
that they have shown so far, they should 
be successful against the Moravian elev- 
en regardless of the injured absences. 
However, a victory-starved team is one 
of the most difficult to stack up against, 
so for this week the battle cry must be, 
"On your toes, Valleymen." 

Orchestra Festival 
On November 28 to 30 

Lebanon Valley extended an invitation 
to instrumental students from about 75 
colleges and universities in Pennsylvania 
to participate in the annual Intercolle- 
giate Orchestra Festival to be held here

the Pennsylvania Music Educators' Asso- 
ciation and will be from November 28 
to 30. Rehearsals of the estimated 104 
piece orchestra will be conducted here 
on campus, and during this time the stu- 
dents will be guests of the residents of 
Annville and will take their meals at the 
United Brethren Church. Starting Wed- 
nesday afternoon, November 28, rehear- 
sals will be held in the auxiliary gym and 
will be open to visitors. On Friday even- 
ing, November 30, the Intercollegiate Or- 
chestra will give its concert in the Harris- 
burg Forum under the direction of g uest 
conductor Edward McArthur, conductor 
of the Harrlsburg symphony. The pro- 
gram includes The Marriage of Fig*"'

parents' Day To Be 
Held November 10 

parents' Day, November 10, is a new 
service of the Student Christian Associa- 
tion. Its main purpose is to enable both 
parents to be on campus, participate in 
programs, and be entertained by their 
children in one busy and memorable day. 

The activities of Parents' Day will be- 
gin early in the morning with tours of 
the campus. The benefit game with Mora- 
vian, played in the Lebanon High School 
stadium, will furnish the afternoon en- 
tertainment and an informal buffet din- 
ner will begin the evening which will 
conclude with the dance sponsored by 
the Junior Class and a variety show. 

Parents' Day is a combination of 
Dad's Day and Mother's Week-End. It 
will give you fellows a chance to bring 
your mothers on campus and give you 
girls an opportunity to show the campus 
to your fathers. Open house in all dorms 
will be a feature of the day. 

Student Teacher Talks 
Highlight FTA Meeting 

Special feature of the second meeting 
of Future Teachers of America on Tues- 
day, November 6, will be marimba music 
played by Kenneth Keiser. Four seniors 
will relate some of their experiences in 
student teaching in the Lebanon and 
Hershey schools. Nancy Myers, Jim 
Pacy, George Rutledge, and Elma Brei- 
denstine will share their experiences wi:h 
the group. 

Dottie Bontreger, Nancy Myers, Biii 
Shoppell, and DeWitt Zuse will report on 
the Southern District Conference of FTA 
which they attended in York last month. 
Refreshments will also be served at Tues- 
day's meeting which begins at 7:30 P. M. 
in Philo Hall. 

Colored pictures will be taken at this 
and subsequent meetings so that at the 
end of the year the organization will 
have a record of the year's activities in 
the form of small colored slides. 

The next meeting of the FTA will be a 
Christmas party in December. Elaine 
Barron, social chairman, has charge of 
this program. 


The sophomore class will sponsor 
a hayride followed by a sock dance 
on Saturday evening, November 3. 
The hay wagons will leave North 
Hall between 7:30 and 8:00 P. M., 
and will return to the auxiliary gym 
about 10 P. M. Everyone will then 
remove his shoes and dance to the 
music of records in his stocking feet. 
Refreshments will be served. 

Barbara Ranck Elected 
S. C. M. Representative 

Barbara Ranck, '54, was elected Inter - 
Collegian representative for the South 
Eastern Area of the Student Christian 
Movement at the Fall Area Conference 
held at Camp Michaux October 19-21. 
Other officers for the area are Nancy 
Bakke, Wilson College, and representa- 
tive to the International Student Chris- 
tian meeting in Oslo, Norway, during 
the past summer; Daniel Bechtel, Frank- 
lin and Marshall, Finance Chairman. 
Glenn Dietrich and Lucie Portier attend- 
ed this conference as the Lebanon Valley 

The conference was based on the ques 
tion, "Why Hope?" The platform speat- 
er, Father Jones, pastor of the Trinity 
Episcopal Church in Chambersburg, and 
chaplain to the girls of Wilson and 
Hood Colleges, spoke on the subject 
"Our Christian Heritage," the ways in 
which it affects us, the manner in which 
we should use it, and most importantly, 
whether we use this heritage to its full 
worth in the mere accumulation of 
knowledge, or whether it is necessary to 
use it in every day life in order to make 
it bring forth its true and complete bless- 
ings. Four seminars, each lasting two 
hours, discussed this question in regard 
to what we as students can do, to what 
tve as future workers and employees can 
do, and to what we can do to influence 
our neighbors. Final opinions formulat- 
ed by the groups were: (1) A vocation 
does not have to be full time service tr 
the church, i.e., that of a minister oi 
missionary, but can become a Christian 
vocation if the person follows Christian 
principles in his work; (2) One should 
feel called to his vocation, should love 
it and be happy in it; (3) that a conscious 
effort for daily religious devotion is a 
must if we are ever to realize the full 
power of our Christian heritage.

LA VIE Awarded 
First Class Honor 
Rating From ACP 

In the recently completed All-Ameri- 
can Critical Service of college publica- 
tions conducted by the Associated Colle- 
giate Press La Vie Collegienne was 
awarded a first class honor rating. This 
semi-annual rating of college publications 
throughout the country is conducted by 
the journalism school of the University 
of Minnesota. The standards which are 
used as a basis for conducting the ap- 
praisals have been strictly held over the 
past few years, and they have recently 
been raised in the hope of encouraging 
students to maintain high standards of 
journalism. Publications are ranked from 
AIl-American down to fourth class which 
signifies no honors. In the light of the 
increased standards which are held by 
this critical group the editors and staff 
of the paper consider this to be a distinct

William Fairlamb 
Presents First Piano 
Recital This Year 

William Fairlamb, of the Conservatoiy 
faculty, will be presented in a piano re- 
cital in Engle Hall on Tuesday, Novem- 
ber 6, at 8:30 P. M. Selections will be

ficent performer in his many recitals on 
campus and a very enjoyable evening is 
anticipated by those who are planning to 
attend this opening recital of the year. 

LV Stands 49th In 
Production of Scientists 

Two members of the science faculty of 
Wesleyan University, Robert H. Knapp 
and Hubert B. Goodrich, have published 
an article in the May 1 1 issue of 
Science (official publication of the Amer- 
ican Association of the Advancement cf 
Science) which contains a table listing 
the top 50 institutions in the U. S. in the 
production of scientists. 

Lebanon Valley stood 49th in this list 
of the first fifty colleges and universities 
in the nation in the production of scien- 
tists. Very few of the large name col- 
leges and universities, and few eastern 
institutions appeared among the top 50. 
Only two other Pennsylvania colleges, 
Haverford and Swarthmore, preceded 
Lebanon Valley in the listing. In view 
of the fact that the Valley had only a 
five men science faculty during most of 
the period of this survey, this achieve- 
ment is revealed as slightly more than re- 

Listed below are the men of the sci- 
ence faculty to whom proper recognition 
and credit should be given for this rec- 
ord: Biology, Samuel H. Derickson, V. 
Earl Light; Chemistry, Andrew Bendei; 
Physics, Samuel O. Grimm; Mathema- 
tics, John E. Lehman, Bruce H. Redditt, 
Paul S. Wagner. 

PMC Team Sports 
1-5 Season Record 

Gunning for their sixth victory of the 
season, Coach Ralph Ricker's Flying 
Dutchmen of Lebanon Valley travel to 
Chester Saturday to take on the Pennsyl- 
vania Military College eleven. The Fight- 
ing Dutchmen will place their unbeaten- 
in-college-play record on the line against 
the Cadet team that won a game last 
week to halt a five game losing streak 
which saw the charges of Coach Elwood 
' Woody" Ludwig score but ten points up 
until this victory. 

The Lebanon Valley - Penn Mili- 
tary football game will be played in 
P.M.C. Stadium, 14th Street and Mel- 
rose Ave., Chester, Pa., beginning at 
2:00 P. M. Saturday. 

The Red, White and Gold clad Sol- 
diers opened their season by dropping 
a 19-6 decision to West Chester, a team 
that took Valley's measure by two touch- 
downs in a pre-season scrimmage. Leba- 
non Valley's arch rival, Albright, shaded 
the Military Students 12-6 and then 
powerful Scranton shutout the Chester- 
ites 14-0. A big Delaware aggregation 
whipped the Ludwigmen 46-2 and Drexel 
Tech made it five in a row by blankin™ 
the Cadets 16-0. Finally, the victory- 
starved PMC team jumped into the win 
column by clubbing Moravian 35-13 the 
week after the Valley muzzled the Grey- 
hounds 40-0. 


Without a doubt, the Valleymen can 
count on a stiff fight from these Cadets, 
since not only will they attempt to stop 
Valley's bid for an unbeaten season in 
collegiate play, but will also attempt to 
retaliate for that 7-6 victory the Flying 
Dutchmen edged out over the Soldiers 
on a rain-drenched Lebanon High Sta- 
dium field last year in an evening came. 
On top of this, the PMC squad will be 
keyed up for the battle since it is Penn 
Military's Homecoming game and all 
realize how well everyone tries to play 
for the alumni. 

The game on Saturday will mark the 
fourteenth between the two institutions, 
the Valley holding seven wins against 
four for Penn Military with two contests 
ending in ties. The Valley-Military series 
began in 1933 with a scoreless tie; the 
biggest score being marked up b> the 
Blue and White in 1939 when the Cadets 
suffered a 31-0 setback. PMC's greatest 
point total was registered in the thrilling 
1940 game which the Red, White and 
Gold won 19-16. 

Last season the Cadets posted a 3-5 
season beating Albright, Moravian, aud 
Wagner, while losing to the Dutchmen, 
West Chester, Delaware, Drexel, and 
Scranton. This season marks the fifth of 
Coach "Woody" Ludwig at PMC. In foui 
years his Cadet teams have won 20, lost 
12 and tied two. This year Ludwig has 
nineteen men returning to his squad in- 
cluding half-back Jim Joyce of Chester, 
the boy who scored the TD against LV 
last year. 

The Valley squad is in top physical 
condition for the game with Paul Ed- 
wards and Nick Bova back at their posi- 
ions in the line after having recovered 
from their injuries. Sidelined as yet is 
back Ted Lauer, who will probably be 
out for the remainder of the season with 
a shoulder separation, and guard "Bee

Word to the Wise 

In the light of the fact that the Valley faces the beautiful prospect of a pos 
sible undefeated football season in college ball, the editors of this paper got to 
thinking about this said sport, school spirit and other like and related subjects and 
finally and ultimately about the people concerned — the team, the coaches, the 
cheerleaders and all the rest. 

The TEAM. There we really have something. Faced with a small group, 
the coaches, working with a fighting and spirited crew, came up with a squad 
superb in team work and in which every replacement sent in is as good as the 
man coming out. The result — a winning ball club. 

But, and here we approach the point of this article, even though we have 
five major wins behind us, this is not the time to get over-cocky and rest on our 
well deserved laurels. Just because we have humbled our ancient and worthy rival, 
Albright College, is no reason to act as if the season were over. The obvious 
assumption is that we may find our comfortable prop of self-complacency rudely 
knocked out from under us and the proud Valley down in the dust of defeat. 

This is not a warning merely to the team, but more especially to the college 
Three more major and difficult games are facing us. It is important that the 
team increase its determination and keep the 01' Fight, and more important that 
the college get squarely behind their team. This means a very large and enthusi- 
astic showing of Valley rooters at the next game with Pennsylvania Military Col- 
lege. This is the time to sit up and take stock and see to it that mid-season 
lethargy does not ruin a great record. 

Question of the Week 

What merciless bandit took the silverware from the Dinning Hall? Last year 
somebody took the chairs, but at least we managed to eat. However, without 
utensils it is rather difficult eating cereals and beef stew. One thing that the 
lifting did reveal though, was the ingeniousness of some of the Valley students 
when it came time to provide themselves with something to eat. Well, at least we 
all realize now what it must have been like to eat in Chaucer's time. 


'You hold him, I'll get a ropel" 


Praises of DePaur's Infantry Chorus 
are still reverberating between those who 
attended the first of the Community Con- 
cert series in Lebanon. The Latin Amer- 
ican group of songs was a strong favoi- 
ite, and kept everyone guessing as to 
what the chorus did to sound that wa). 

The Harrisburg Symphony opened its 
season on the same evening. Its next ap- 
pearance will be on Tuesday, November 

LA TRAVIATA is being presented on 
Thanksgiving evening only at the Her- 
shey Community Theater. While on the 
subject, keep eyes and ears open for ad- 
vance notices of more opera from the 
Met on TV this season. 

The LV band's excellent drilling at 
Albright last Friday made up doubly 
for the same game two years ago at 
Reading when a steady downpour pre- 
vented the band from appearing at all. 
The gigantic hypodermic needle, a Dr. 
Light invention, was actually constructed 
so that it could be easily equipped with 
a real needle, if one big enough could 
be found. But judging from the snappy 
cadences of the band and the pep and 
spirit of the football team, nothing of 
this sort is needed around LV. 

Everyone is eagerly looking forward 
to the end of the month when LV plays 
host to the Inter-Collegiate Orchestra. 
The personnel is shaping up well, despite 
the lack of violinists at first, and Pro- 
fessor Rutledge is being swamped with 
mail that inquires about tickets for the 
concert to be held in the Forum on Fri- 
day, November 30. Elma Breidenstine 
and Joan Bachman are busy helping out 
in answering these inquiries. 

Congratulations to Professor and Mrs. 
Stachow, who recently became the par- 
ents of their first boy, whom they intend 
to name Andrew. 

The night of Tuesday, November 20, 
is the tentative date for the annual Con- 
serve variety program. For the best in 
musical entertainment, keep this even- 
ing, the last before vacation, open on 
your schedule. 

LV Band Spectacles 
Highlight Season 

The Lebanon Valley College Band 
stepped out again on Homecoming Day 
to welcome the alumni. Six other bands 
preceded ours, all representing high 
schools in this vicinity and conducted by 
alumni of Lebanon Valley College Con- 
servatory. Among our guest performers 
were the Hershey High School Band un- 
der the direction of Paul Fisher; the My- 
erstown High School Band conducted by 
Harold Yeagley; the Fredericksburg High 
School Band, led by Harlan Daubert; the 
Annville High School Band, led by Will- 
iam Lemon; the Manheim High School 
Band, conducted by Joseph Fauber; and 
the newly-formed South Lebanon 
High School Band, organized by 
Peter Boyer. Each band marched on 
the field to the strains of its own school 
march and joined forces with the other 
bands to form the words "Hi Alumni." 
As a finale the combined bands hailed 
the spectators with the march, Saluta- 

On November 10, when LV cele- 
brates Parents' Day at the home game 
with Western Maryland, our band will 
again play host to several bands and 
drum and bugle corps, whose appearance 
will be sponsored by the Kiwanis Club. 
All the bands will march from town to 
the stadium where our band will enter- 
tain them and visiting parents with origi- 
nal drills.

The Sixth Column 

What's home got that Lebanon Valley College ain't? That is the big q Ues , 
tion molding in every corner of this school. As the condition exists at the pres- 
ent time, the students of LVC, the people that you attend classes with and win 
graduate with, definitely rate a goose egg in comparison to the spirit and supp 0n 
of other colleges which are similar in size, calibre of student, and all the other 
ratios that go along with statistics of that nature. So you've got a girl at home— 
move her up here! So your mother misses you — write her a letter once in a while! 
So you miss your buddies on the street corner — have the gang up for a weekend! 
There are all sorts of possibilities to make your best years the greatest. You get 
out of school exactly what you put into it. 

All Kinds of Success 

The L-Club did it again. How wonderful can a dance get? Everything from 
the manner with which Richie Furda sold tickets, to the way in which the last 
poster was stolen for souvenirs of a great evening, was perfectly performed. 

I can't understand how the Freshmen arranged to win the Tug o'War. Things 
like that just don't happen. Oh well, as Prof McKlveen would say, "The tradi- 
tional past versus the ever changing present." 

Attention: All Future Housekeepers 

Open House in the Girls' Dorms proved just one thing: that the future wives 
of LV graduates will have to learn to dust the areas above the doors, on top of 
the mirrors, and between the frets of all ukeleles. The inability to do these things 
"makes for" bigger and better old maid schoolteachers. 

Come to the Fair 

Lucie Portier and Allison Stella, co-chairmen of this year's County Fair, sent 
out the flyers to each campus organization requesting their support in making 
the Fair a success. The replies came in stating everything from a Side Show 
to the traditional SCA auction. 

Speaking of the auction, bits of info have been picked up that Dr. Scholz is 
offering a week of free tutoring and Dr. Sparks will burn the midnight oil in 
typing a term paper for the highest bidder. Some stuff! 

Ray! Prof Coopersmith 

We are privileged to have among us a personage who not only marches in 
parades but also possesses the vocal pep and enthusiasm that it takes to make any 
school proud. God's gift to cheerleaders is none other than Hal Coopersmith. 
Let's hope that some of that verbal energy rubs off on the student body who are 
supposed to cheer at the future games instead of sitting like conventional bumps 
on a log. Oops, sorry. 

Hey! Hay 

This is the opportunity you've been waiting for — your chance to wear the 
smelliest socks you own and to develop your hay fever all in one evening! The 
Sophomore Class offers you all the dancefloor you wish and all the hay you can 
eat for the small fee of one you-know-whatser. So, in case your girl has just 
asked you to go, perhaps reservations are still available. Ask any Sophomore. 

The Reminder 

At this very moment you are sitting reading LaVie. The paper is dated 
Thursday, November 1st. Gosh, only 54 days before Christmas. 

Odds and Ends 

Buffy, our big bruiser of a football hero, recently appeared in Levin's fashion 
show. Lebanon Valley's answer to Alexander Graham Bell modeled a raccoon 
coat and according to professionals he wasn't bad at it either. Nice going, John! 

Poochie Kaufman and Frank DeAngelis worked on Operation Devour this 
past weekend as their time was spent at the DeAngelis' in Orange, N. J. We 
understand it was like running a diner for those two. Mucho food, eh boys? 

Richie Furda is making more truces these days. Well, a little war and then 
a little peace never hurt anyone we guess. 

Stan Cohen is really keeping the Post Office Department jumping. According 
to the latest reports he has been the recipient of suits, shoes, rabbits, pamphlets, 
service bulletins, and other paraphernalia that he doesn't send for. Every day 
is an experience for Stan as he never knows what is next. Who knows, Stan, 
maybe tomorrow you'll get a bear from Russia. (That's nothing, Carelli and 
Tarantola have a bear from Manville.) 

All this talk about New Jersey High School football teams on campus. Nancy 
Risdon silences them all by saying Elizabethtown would clean 'em all up. De- 
Benedett is giving E-town and 80 against Montclair if anyone cares to wager. 

If Howie Landa and Buzzy Sachs don't stop practicing basketball they'll drop 
dead one of these days. According to a recent survey they've almost worn out the 
net on the south basket in the gym. 

Suggestion of the Week 

For those men students desirous of learning what the interior of an Egyptian 
pyramid looks like we can offer no better suggestion than to visit room 100. 
There Mustapha Kelly, Allah Starkweather, and Pasha Krieg will be more than 
glad to show you around. To say the least, it is amazing what they've got in 
there. Better yet, what don't they have? (All right wise guys, you know they're 
not permitted here.) 


Who on earth is this "Mentor" people are talking about? The statement 
"Mentor won't like that" is driving us crazy. Somebody please tell us. 

Craziness of the Week 

To some Princeton Alumni the Princeton-Cornell game of the past Saturday 
was so important that even their dogs heard the game. Yep, that's right. Tt seems 
that they took Fido to the game and when said creature wasn't allowed into the 
stadium, (after all it's Princeton you know, tsk, tsk,) Mr. Alumni left Fido in 
the car, turned on the radio, and the dog had a wild time while Dick Kazmaier and 
Company performed inside. However, a survey made of the dogs that heard the 
game revealed that 36.4% of them would have preferred to have seen the con- 
test on television at their favorite bar. Over 60% of the canines claimed they 
enjoyed the radio broadcast and 2% had no opinion. One dog dropped dead 
after Princeton scored the fifty-fifth point because that made him lose on his p°°" 
Two other dogs could not be had for comment because hey were believed to 
be scouts for Yale. 

The only creature reached for comment by your reporter was Rover "• 
Quonsethut-Dogshed, owned by Stuble Beard Doublechin II (Cornell '34) an^ 
poor Rover had nothing to say but, "I say, ole fellow, could you tell me where 
can find a Princton fireplug? I'm so tired of using these red ones, that's all vsrc 
have up at Cornell you know, red fireplugs. On second thought, they're all re ' 
Well, these Cornell Alumni get around, they sure do. Nice meeting you, ole top» 
cheerio and all that, hip, hip." Here he paused while walking away and the , 
turned around and said, "Beat Pennsylvania." "Yeah," I hollered, "Beat Penn-^ 
Then I jumped into my car and roared down to Linden, to the 1900 Club, a 
had some milkshakes to steady my nerves. Talking to dogs, ohhh!

The SFC Report 
To the Students 

At the last meeting, the Student-Facui- 
ty Council voted on an expression of 
opinion concerning the policy of reserv- 
ing Wednesday evenings for religious ac- 
tivities exclusively. The group was unani- 
mous in approval of the policy. It was 
felt by all that it is entirely fitting to set 
aside one night a week for religious ac- 
tivities. It was felt that no other activicy 
of any kind should be carried on at this 
time. This policy was originally set forth 
by the Annville Council of Churches, 
and has been followed in the past. Dean 
Hayes mentioned, however, that there 
had been some question raised as to the 
reason for such a ruling, and he felt that 
S.F.C. should express an opinion con- 
cerning it. 

Student-Faculty Council was also le- 
quested to make clear to the student 
body the meaning of the Campus Chest 
drive. It is to be emphasized that this 
will be the only drive of its kind on 
campus this year; that is to say, it will 
be the only drive during which the stu- 
dents are asked for a donation. The 
Campus Chest is asking only two dollars 
per student. 

Dean Dent has also requested that tne 
sponsors of any activity occurring in the 
evenings turn in to her office a list of 
the girls who will attend. This list should 
be turned in not later than twenty-four 
hours before the date of the event, and 
forms for these lists may be obtained 
from either Dean Dent or Dean Hayes. 

Student-Faculty Council was also ask- 
ed to act upon recognition of the cheer 
leaders as an organization, and their ad- 
mittance to S.F.C. 

National Teacher Exams 
To Be Given In February 

The National Teacher Examinations, 
prepared and administered annually by 
Educational Testing Service, will be giv- 
en at 200 testing centers throughout the 
United States on Saturday, February 16, 

At the one-day testing session a candi- 
date may take the Common Examina- 
tions, which include tests in Professional 
Information, General Culture, English 
Expression, and Non-verbal Reasoning; 
and one or two of nine Optional Exami- 
nations, designed to demonstrate mastery 
of subject matter to be taught. The col- 
lege which a candidate is attending, or 
the school system in which he is seeking 
employment, will advise him whether be 
should take the National Teacher Exam- 
inations, and which of the Optional Ex- 
aminations to select. 

Application forms, and a Bulletin of 
Information describing registration pro- 
cedure and containing sample test ques- 
tions, may be obtained from college offi- 
cials, school superintendents, or directly 
from the National Teacher Examina- 
tions, Educational Testing Service, P. O. 
Box 592, Princeton, New lersey. Com- 
pleted applications. acroT>pa" ; ed by 
Proper examination Ic^s, will be accept- 
ed by the ETS office during November, 
December, and in lanuary so long as 
they are received before January 18,

entitled, "Forget Not These Children" 
an d "Life with Baby." Each will last 
twenty minutes. 

All who are interested are invited by

County Fair 

The faculty is up for auction and the 
clubs are sponsoring Can-Can dancers. 
Faculty Auction and County Fair, the 
two most festive, laugh provoking events 
on the Lebanon Valley Activities' Calen- 
dar, will be the center of activity Friday 
evening, November 2. The auxiliary gym 
and the near-by corridors will feature 
booth and concession with freaks, danc- 
ers, dart boards, basketball trials, gun 
ranges, and fortune teller. The horse and 
buggy will be handy for all who want to 
ride in country air. 

Here are some of the faculty offers: 
"Dinner and the evening for socialization 
— TVing or what have you"; "a hand 
painted toletray"; "dinner and a show for 
two (several offers like this)"; "I'll type * 
term paper;" "Three hours of advise and 
counsel to a student, a group of students, 
or groups of students, concerning any 
mathematical problem"; and finally from 
one who wants to prove that he knows his 
subject, "Je suis dispose de faire une

Pol Sci Club Plans 
Project; First Social 

The Political Science Club of Lebanon 
Valley College met Thursday, October 
25, to outline and assign the duties con- 
nected with the basketball program con- 
cession which it conducts each year. Un- 
der this plan the Political Science Club 
composes, has printed, and sells basket- 
ball programs at each game. Profits from 
the sale of the programs and the adver- 
tisements carried in the programs go into 
the club treasury in order to pay ex- 
penses at the annual Intercollegiate Con- 
ference on Government which is held 
each spring in Harrisburg. 

The Club also announced final plans 
for the first Political Science social which 
will be held Friday, November 2, and 
which will feature a talk by Mrs. Laugh-

umn printed the answers of ten people 
to the question, "Whom do you consider 
the most important living person in the 
world?" Surprisingly, three students stat- 
ed that they considered Stalin the most 
important because what he says influ- 
ences the whole world. Do the readers 
of La Vie agree? 

From The Rider News of Rider Col- 
lege via The Setonian of Seton Hall Uni- 
versity, South Orange, New Jersey, come 
the following statistics. 

"Excuses for neglect of studies are oi 
great variety and originality, but a re- 
cent survey shows the underlying causes 
of this unpreparedness are as follows: 72 
per cent are due to women, 18.6 per cent 
originate through laziness, 8 per cent be- 
cause of television and 1.4 are true as 
related by the student." 

Having just dedicated the new physi- 
cal education building, Lebanon Valley 
may be interested in knowing that an- 
other E. U. B. college is preparing for 
ground breaking for the construction of 
a new building this fall. The Sandburr 
of York College reports that this Nebras- 
ka college is readying for the construc- 
tion of a new administration building. 
With three-fifths of the goal already re- 
alized in cash and pledges, officials of 
the church and college are planning to 
break ground soon. 

Eight students are enrolled in an Es- 
peranto course at Elizabethtown College, 
Elizabethtown, Pa. According to The 
Etownian "bewildered students of com- 
plex languages will find the answer to 
their problems in the sixteen simple 
grammatical rules of Esperanto." There 
are no exceptions to these rules of this 
new international language, either. 

The Setonian reprinted the following 
story from The Technician. 

"A patient teacher was trying to teach 

a young pupil how to read with expres- 

" 'Where-are-you-going,' read Billy la- 
boriously, with no accent whatever. 

" 'Try that again,' said the teacher. 
'Read it as if you were talking, and no- 
tice the mark at the end of your sen- 

"Billy studied the 'question mark' a 
moment and an idea seemed to dawn 
upon him. Then he read triumphantly: 
'Where are you going, little button- 
hook?' "

Sample Snags Sorrentino's 
Aerial For LV Touchdown 

Red Skeleton would have probably 
said, "I dood it" if he would have been 
in the shoes of George Cardone at Read- 
ing on Friday night. For there before 
5,000 spectators in excellent football 
weather Lebanon Valley's Cardone boot- 
ed the all important point after 
touchdown as Coach Ralph Ricker's 
Flying Dutchmen added a Lion pelt to 
their string of victories by subduing arch 
rival Albright 7-6. The win marked the 
fifth straight in collegiate play for the 
Dutchmen who have lost only to the 
star-studded Indiantown Gap Military 
team by one touchdown and thus re- 
mained unbeaten and untied in college 
play. For the Red Lions of Albright it 
was the second loss of the season, their 
previous defeat coming at the hands of 
an out-of-their-class Temple team, 47-6. 

The victory over Albright gave the 
Annville collegians a 14-13 edge in the 
series that dates back to 1902 with two 
of these Lion-Dutchmen tilts ending in 

Once again that remarkable Valley 
defense came through in fine fashion as 
they squelched five Albright offensive 
threats that could very readily have re- 
sulted in scores. With the count 7-6 
Valley, it was Joe Ferrer who started the 
game-saving as he recovered Bruce Ten- 
ley's fumble on the Blue and White 29 
and thus halted a determined 39-yard 
Albright attack. We might add here 
that it was really something to check the 
Lions once they started roaring in the 
second half. They played more aggres- 
sively than they did at the outset and it 
was this factor, that LV line, that saved 
the day for the Blue and White. Paulie 
Edwards then turned hero for the Valley 
cause as the hefty lineman stopped an- 
other Albright threat on the 19 by re- 
covering a fumble from an apparently 
nervous Albright quarterback. Here too, 
the Lions were in definite scoring posi- 
tion with those "we want a touchdown" 
cheers screaming at them from their 
stands. Fred Sample, the Valley's spirit- 
ed co-captain who scored that Valley 
TD, came through next for the Ricker- 
men as he intercepted an Albright pass 
on the Valley 15. If anybody thought 
Albright was giving up here they had 
another guess coming as Chauncey Krout 
heaved a tremendous 55-yard pass down- 
field to Bob Krize who caught it simul- 
taneously as Sample brought him down 
on the 15. From this point pandemon- 
ium reigned as every Albright play was 
being watched for that possible touch- 
down. However, much to the joy of the 
Valleyites and to the dismay of the Al- 
bright rooters the TD never materialized. 
Ed Tesnar and Nick Bova dented the 
Albright line and tossed the Red and 
White for successive losses of about eight 
yards and one of Krout's passes was 
grounded with Albright losing the ball 
and the game. 

Sorrentino to Sample: TD 

As for the scoring of the TD it was 
the Valley air arm that went into action 
again. Lou Sorrentino opened the game 
with a heave that brought the throng to 
its feet by tossing one to Frank Ritrievi 
that just fell off the end's fingertips. 
That was an indication of what was to 
come! Sorrentino threw 25 passes for 
the Rickerite cause, the Sharon Hill 
sophomore slinger seeing 10 of these con- 
nect. After a scoreless first quarter the 
Valley started an 88-yard drive in the 
second period with Ralph Giordano, Don 
DeBenedett, and Walt Shonosky moving 
the ball to the Albright 25. Louie's 
first pass to Dan McGary was to no 
avail and Giordano's two carries took 
only to the 21. With last down coming 
up the Valley called time out. What a 
time out that must have been for when 
play resumed, Lou took the ball, gave it 
one of those "coach's nightmare" fum- 
bles, picked it up again as though he was 

basketballing, and then fired to Sample 
on the 15 who in turn sent the Valley 
fans into a joyous uproar by scoring. 
Mr. Cardone stepped up, kicked, and 
that was it, the seven points growing in 
importance as the game wore on. 

Albright scored in the second half on 
a very neat play with Tom Savage toss- 
ing from the Valley 39 to Bruce Tenley 
on the 20 who was in the clear and raced 
to paydirt for the only other score of 
the game. This involved faking a re- 
verse and an end run with Savage then 
flipping the aerial in southpaw style. 
Tony D'Apolito's placement boot was 
high to the left and thus the Lion never 
made up the one point margin which re- 
sulted in a Valley triumph.

Collegiate Press 
Reveals SBC Survey 

Santa Barbara, Calif.— (LP.)— Dr. Jo- 
seph E. Lantagne, assistant professor of 
men's physical education at Santa Bar- 
bara College, has completed a survey 
which shows young men are greatly in- 
terested in health problems of atomic 
radiation, but that this is a subject vii- 
tually ignored by young women. 

Dr. Lantagne made an item- by-itern 
analysis of health interest shown by 500 
men and 500 women attending junior 
college. Some strikingly different inter- 
ests were shown by sex, with men more 
concerned in exercise and safety and 
women in family health. 

The survey was made by Dr. Lantagne 
because California law requires the in- 
clusion of health instruction in the jun- 
ior college curriculum, with course con- 
tent left up to each school. He conduct- 
ed a survey to ascertain in which sub- 
jects there is greatest interest, adding, 
however, that needs of the students may 
be somewhat different than their inter- 

In a list of 50 health interest items, 
boys placed their interests in the first 
ten items in this order: Sex instruction, 
lifelong care of the eyes, tobacco and 
human health, causes of mental illness, 
preparation for marriage, problems of 
alcohol, atomic warfare, problem of 
tooth decay, juvenile delinquency, and 

The corresponding ten items given 
first rank out of 50 by young women 
were: Causes of mental illness, lifelong 
care of the eyes, sex instruction, prepar- 
ation for marriage, juvenile delinquency, 
cancer, jealousy, causes of suicide, to- 
bacco and human health, and social dis- 

Dr. Lantagne pointed out that there 
are differences in health interests of boys 
and girls which justify some support for 
segregated classes. 

He said that the survey showed that 
a number of problems previously consid- 
ered nonessential or relegated to obscur- 
ity which are now of prime interest in- 
clude cancer and juvenile delinquency, 
noting that the latter is now considered 
not only a social problem, but a health 
problem as well. 

Lebanon Valley College has met 86 
different gridiron opponents in 50 years 
of football. 

Although we are in the middle of the 
gridiron season, basketball has nudged 
on to the sports scene here at the Valley 
with the first practice session called by 
Coach Ralph Mease last Tuesday. Th e 
Dutchmen open their 1951-52 campaign 
on December 1 when the Blue and White 
dribblers tangle with the Indiantown Gap

Sixty-Eight Representatives From Colleges, 
Universities, and Learned Societies Attend 

Lebanon Valley Football Team To Meet The 
M.orris Harvey College Eagles in Tennessee 
Burley Bowl Contest on Thanksgiving Day 

Perhaps what could be termed 
greatest piece of sports news concern- 
ing Lebanon Valley College in a decade 
broke earlier this week when rumor had 
it that Lebanon Valley was being con- 
sidered for a post-season football bowl 
bid. By Tuesday the campus was buzz- 
ing with gossip about the supposedly 
secret deal and then Tuesday evening 
the Lebanon Daily News made comment 
concerning the fact. At Tuesday's foot- 
ball meeting the squad was told that 
they will definitely participate in a bowl 
game. Wednesday afternoon the As- 
sociated Press released the report which 
was the first official confirmation of the 
story that Lebanon Valley has accepted 
the bid to play in the Burley Bowl at 
Johnson City, Tennessee on Thanks- 
giving Day. Lebanon Valley's opponent, 
who accepted the bid earlier in the week, 
will be Morris Harvey College of Char- 
leston, West Virginia. 

The bid came somewhat as a surprise 
due to the fact that before the Western 
Maryland game the football team was 
notified that if they should defeat West- 
ern Maryland they might stand the 
chance of a bowl bid. Well, after drop- 
ping a 20-12 decision to the Maryland 
team, hope for a bid was given up. How- 
ever, Burley Bowl authorities contacted 
Coach Ralph "Dutch" Ricker earlier this 
week and from then on negotiations were 
underway until eventually it was officially 
confirmed by Johnson City. 

According to tentative plans the Fly- 
ing Dutchmen will leave Annville on 
Tuesday morning and will return some 
time during the weekend. Since all but 
Tuesday will be included in the 
Thanksgiving Vacation, which is sche- 
duled from Wednesday through Monday, 
the players and others attending will 
hardly miss any classes at all. It is ex- 
pected that they will travel by bus. 
Morris Harvey Has Outstanding 

Looking at records of the opponent, 
all that can be said is that they are hard- 
ly to be taken lightly if last year's re- 
cord means anything. The charges of 
Coach Eddie King went through a nine 


Miss Gillespie Delegate 
To National Convention 

Miss Mary E. Gillespie will represent 
the Lebanon Valley College Conserva- 
tory of Music at the annual convention 
of the National Association of Schoo's 
of Music, to be held November 22-25 at 
Cincinnati, with headquarters in the Ho- 
tel Netherlands Plaza. 

In 1941 Lebanon Valley College be- 
came a member of NASM, the only or- 
ganization in the United States that eval- 
uates schools of music. 

This year one of the main points to 
he under discussion is the curriculum 
for schools having departments of music 
education. The first meeting of this na- 
ture will be at ten o'clock Thanksgiving 
D ay. This and another at 2 P. M. the 
s ame day will prepare for discussion to 
follow the next day, November 23. 

Miss Gillespie feels that the purpose- 
ful attention to music education depart- 
ments and the meeting of the association 
wi th the Music Education National Con- 
ference head, Miss Marguerite Hood, 
Will be most profitable, and some change 
ln curriculum may result. 

Pictured above is Edwin McArthur, who will conduct Inter-Collegiate Orchestra 

Orchestra at LVC 
November 28*30 

Nineteen of the colleges in Pennsylva- 
nia will be represented on campus when 
Lebanon Valley College plays host for 
the third annual Inter-Collegiate Orches- 
tra, taking place November 28-30. Pro- 
fessor E. P. Rutledge has been planning 
for this event months in advance and 
the maximum is being done for the con- 
venience of the conductor, Edwin Mc- 
Arthur, who directs the Harrisburg Sym- 
phony, and the orchestra's members. 

Sleeping facilities and breakfasts will 
be provided by the people of Annville. 
Other meals, including a banquet the 
evening of the concert, will be served in 
the Evangelical United Brethren Churcu. 

The concert will be held in the Forurn 
in Harrisburg at 8:30 P. M., Friday, No- 
vember 30, in conjunction with the 
PMEA convention. For this reason, the 
number of tickets available to the public 
was limited and it was necessary to re- 
fuse hundreds of requests for them from 
the Harrisburg area. A certain number 
of free tickets may be obtained by Leba- 
non Valley students. 

The orchestra will assemble Wednes- 
day, November 28, and will begin re- 
hearal at 1 P. M. in the auxiliary gym- 
nasium. Rehearsals here will be open to 
interested students and faculty members, 
providing their presence does not inter- 
fere with the work in progress. 

The personnel to date includes the fol-

E. McArthur 
Will Conduct 
Music Festival 

On the morning of November 13, Di. 
Frederic K. Miller was inaugurated as 
the twelfth president of Lebanon Valley 
College. The academic procession in- 
cluded members of the faculty, trus- 
tees, representaives from 53 other insti- 
tutions of higher learning, and delegates 
from 15 educational associations. The 
installation ceremonies were held at ten 
o'clock in the college church. At 3:30 
P.M. a reception and tea was held in the 
Lynch Memorial Physical Education 

The procession marched in order of 
the dates of founding of the respective 
colleges and universities and learned soci- 
eties. Dr. George Struble, head of the 
English Department of Lebanon Valley 
College, headed the group as Marshall 
of the Procession. The colleges and uni- 
versities represented were headed by Paul 
H. Musser, A.B., Ph.D., LL.D., Chair- 
man of the University of Pennsylvania. 
This group included 22 college presi- 
dents. The learned societies were headed 
by the representative of the American 
Philosophical Society — Roy F. Nichols, 
Ph.D., Litt.D., L.H.D., M.A., Professor 
of History at the University of Pennsyi- 

The installation program included 
greetings from the church by the Rev- 
erend George E. Epp, D.D., LL.D., Bish- 
op of the Eastern Area of the Evangeli- 
cal United Brethren Church; from the 
faculty by Samuel O. Grimm, Sc.D., se- 
nior member of the faculty of Lebanon 
Valley College; from the alumni by Rob- 
ert A. Nichols, III, President of the 
Alumni Association; from the students 
by Frederick Sample, President of the 
Student-Faculty Association, and from the 
community by William H. Worrilow, 
LL.D., Trustee at Large. The charge 
was conferred by E. N. Funkhouser, 
A.B., LL.D., President of the Board of 
Trustees, assisted by Bishop Epp. The 
response and inaugural address were then 
presented by Dr. Miller. The Reverend 
William A. Wilt, D.D., college pastor, 
gave the invocation, and the benediction 
was pronounced by The Reverend D. E. 
Young, D.D., Superintendent of the East 
Pennsylvania Conference. Special music 
was provided by the College Glee Club 
under the direction of Professor Edward 
P. Rutledge.

Four Hockey 
Girls Compete 
At Rochester 

Four girls from Lebanon Valley's 
hockey team were chosen to participate 
in the Mid-East Tournament in Rochest- 
er, New York, on November 17 and 18. 
Jeanne Hutchinson will play right wing 
on the first team, and Libby Roper will 
play right halfback on the third team. 
Elaine Barron, right wing, and Evelyn 
Eby, goalie, were chosen substitutes. 
These selections were made at the Cen- 
tral Pennsylvania Field Hockey Associa- 
tion Tournament held here on the Leban- 
on Valley hockey field on Saturday, 
November 10. 

Members of the first team are left 
wing, Risser, Lock Haven; left inner, 
Huntzberger, Gettysburg; right wing, 
Hutchinson, Lebanon Valley; left half, 
Taylor, Gettysburg; center half, Hamp- 
ton, Millersville; right half, Morrison, 
Lancaster Hockey Club; left full, Fuhro, 
Gettysburg; right full, Schmidt, Harris-

The selection committee included Mrs. 
Miriam Guiley, Camp Hill; Lee Ann 
Wagner, Philadelphia; Mrs. Isaac Taylor, 
Lancaster; Miss Charlotte Smith, Lock 
Haven; and Miss Helen Nechi, Bucknell. 

In the tournament 13 contests were 
held, each lasting twenty-five minutes. 
Following are the scores made by the 
participating teams and the names of 
the scorers: 


Edwin McArthur, the conductor who 
will be present on campus to direct the 
Inter-Collegiate Orchestra Festival Nov- 
ember 28-30, will be warmly welcomed 
by those who have attended any of the 
Harrisburg Symphony concerts within 
the last year or have played or sung 
under his baton. Only in his second 
year as conductor of the Harrisburg 
Symphony Orchestra, he has been quick 
in establishing an excellent reputation for 
his musicianship and directing ability. 

Prior to his coming to Harrisburg, Mr. 
McArthur directed the St. Louis Munici- 
pal Opera Company Orchestra for many 
years. In an article in a July issue of 
Pictures, a St. Louis weekly, he is des- 
cribed as one who "offers a choice vo- 
cabulary of physical and facial contor- 
tions." "McArthur writhes, cringes, im- 
plores, beams satisfaction, grits displeas- 
ure, flays the air, points, reaches, pulls 
back as though to throw a fast ball, 
doubles his left fist menacingly. Right- 
handed baton movements may be deli- 
cate carresses or savage jabs. His pod- 
ium choreography ranges from a simu- 
lation of treading water to hip swinging 
when the music is jazzy. With all its 
dynamics, his conducting is not an ex- 
cessive personal display. It's simply his 
way of getting the most out of those 
under him. He holds the reins firm, 
drives hard." 

The conductor is 43 years old, married, 
and is now living in New York. 


Dr. Bender Speaks 
To Chemistry Club 

A meeting of the Chem Club was held 
last Thursday night. Professor Hans 
Schneider, a new addition to the chem- 
istry department, gave a few words of 
welcome to the club members. Dr. An- 
drew Bender, past head of the chemistry 
department here at Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege, also spoke about his trip to Alaska. 
His talk was illustrated with color slides 
which were taken on the trip. 

In the business meeting it was decided 
to hold the dinner dance on February 8; 
however, no place has been selected for 
the dance as yet. 

W & B Play 

Four to Star Friday 
In The Glass Menagerie 

The Wig and Buckle Club of Lebanon 
Valley College will present The Glass 
Menagerie by Tennessee Williams in 
Engle Hall Friday, November 16, 1951 
at 8:15 p.m. This play is one of the 
most famous of the modern theater. It 
was a great success in New York, on the 
road and in many countries abroad. In 
1945 it won the Sidney Howard Memori- 
al Award and the New York Drama 
Critics Circle Award. 

The cast is composed of Amanda 
Wingfield played by Joan Rosenberg; 
Tom, played by Armen Banklian; Laura, 
played by Darlene Moyer; and Jim 
O'Connor, played by Robert Krieg. 

The setting is in a dingy St. Louis 
apartment where Amanda Wingfield, a 
faded tragic remnant of Southern gentili- 
ty, lives in poverty with her son, Tom, 
and her daughter, Laura. Amanda striv- 
es to give meaning and direction to her 
life and the lives of her children, though 
her methods are ineffective and irritating. 
Tom is driven nearly to distraction by 
his mother's nagging, and seeks escape 

in alcohol and the unrealistic world of 
the movies. Laura, whose crippled con- 
dition is intensified by her mother's an- 
xiety to see her married, is driven more 
and more into herself. One day Tom 
invites a young man of his acquaintance 
to take dinner with the family. Jim, the 
caller, is at once pounced upon by Aman- 
da as a possible husband for Laura. In 
spite of her crude and obvious efforts 
to entrap the young man, he and Laura 
manage to get along very nicely, and 
momentarily Laura is lifted out of her- 
self and away from her surroundings in- 
to a new world. The world of illusion 
which Amanda and Laura have striven 
to create in order to make life bearable, 
crashes about them upon a revelation 
made by Jim. 

Joan Rosenberry is a transfer student 
from Juniata College. Before entering 
college she was active in high school 
dramatics. Many will remember her 
performance in the Homecoming play, 
Teapot on the Rocks.

LV-TV is Pre-Vacation Show; 
Television the Conservite Way 

LV-TV's the name, your show of shows! Tuesday night, November 20, the 
Conservatory students are presenting in Engle Hall at 8 P. M. their own tele- 
vision show. Entirely original, this production will not be long-harr, but a crew- 
cut extravaganza full of fun and the best in musical entertainment. 

Included in the evening's seeing pleasure is Sit and Twitch with Tritch, a fif- 
teen minute band program sponsored by Twitch's shampoo, and a fashion show, 
Cats from Sacks, with all the latest styles. Featured among our famous models 
will be Georgeous Curfman, star of radiavision and teleshows, and Dangerous 
Dundore, holder of the women's wrestling title. For the intellectual there will 
be an educator's program later in the evening called Faculty Follies. This program 
is designed to advertise the efficiency and success with which music auditions are 
carried out and the talent that is brought to our shows. Among those who have 
thus far applied for auditions are Metronome Rutledge and Yodeling Crawford, 
two outstanding artists in the field of music. And, besides the weekly LV Amateur 
Hour program, the first television shows of the season strictly for music lovers 
will be presented. Through special channels will be brought the world premiere 
of Ballet Rush with that world renowned toe team, Sneezerhan and Moses, and 
the opening night performance of Paula's Plight at the Met. 

So don't be content to sit in your armchairs and watch television; come to the 
Engle Hall studio on Tuesday evening, November 20, for fifty cents worth of 
life-size television. 

Conserv Notes . . 

The students with strange expressions on their faces who seem to be having 
mysterious conversations and secret meetings are those who are planning for the 
"LV-TV" show the last evening before Thanksgiving vacation. Perhaps it could 
be called a musical circus. See article above for more details. 

Now that everyone is looking forward to the Conserv formal, the social 
atmosphere has definitely improved. The place — Carlisle Country Club. Date — 
Saturday, December 1. Menu — "Just set my little stomach all a-flutter with 
gastric juices." Music — Frank Taylor. Who will be there? Conserv faculty, 
students, alumni, and guests. And you? As for choice of partner, don't worry 
about the dancing. Just think how much better off you are than those in the 
Ivan Kirov dance troupe, of Hollywood, who dance with live boa constrictors. But 
then some prefer the other extreme, the "I'll go my way, you go yours" partner. 
Now, don't forget, see you in the nursery, — oops! — excuse me, I mean the "bawl

ways for pupils to learn the names of lines and spaces. "Stringo," a variation of 
"Bingo" is the latest and can be tdayed by all string players at the same time. 
(Not recommended for 20 minute instrumental classes.) . . . You don't have to 
go to the library for the name of the tune that's been on your mind all day. Just 
look up Jane Martin, senior, walking dictionary of musical themes. You'll recog- 
nize her by the little ravelings of tunes she's always humming. Her assistant and 
research manager is Donald Gingrich . . . One student teacher was approached by 
a new young drum pupil, who, clutching eagerly at her drum sticks and not know- 
ing this was her teacher, said, "How long have you been taking lessons?"

Dr. Light Speaks To 
Biology Club Thursday 

On Thursday, November 15, at 7:30 
p.m. the Biology Club, for it second meet 
ing of the year, had as guest speaker 
Dr. V. Earl Light. Dr. Light, who receiv- 
ed his doctor's degree at Johns Hopkins 
University, spoke about the salt wa 
ter-clam, the subject of his thesis. He 
also talked about procedures and tech- 
niques in writing a thesis. All students 
were welcome to attend this meeting. 

At the last meeting Bill Craighead

Hole Country of Wyoming.

time in the near future. 


you free," will continue to be the guide- 
post for college policy. In describing 
the place of the small college in the Am- 
erican educational scene, Dr. Miller said 
that the task of the small liberal arts 
college "is to produce men and women 
who are Christian in their outlook, cour- 
ageous in their living, and devoted in 
their service to those things which pro- 
duce a better civilization." 

A native of Lebanon, Pa., the 42 year 
old educator has been a member of the 
Lebanon Valley College faculty since 
1939, and has served as acting-president 
of the college since the death of the late 
Dr. Clyde A. Lynch in August, 1950. 
He is the third Lebanon Valley alumnus 
to become president of the college since 
its founding in 1866. 

Perhaps no football, game was greater 
or is more talked about than the fabulous 
New Jersey Tech-Arizona Military In- 
stitute game of 1911 which saw two unde- 
feated, untied, and unscored upon rivals 
meet at Copperhead Fangs, Arizona, on 
the very cold and snowy Saturday after- 
noon of November 29, 1911. All the 
superlatives in the world cannot describe 
this contest which saw Marmaduke Zeni- 
celli of New Jersey Tech and Horace 
Shultz of Arizona Military Institute come 
to blows before a hysterically blood 
thirsty crowd of 79,000 at Arizona Mili- 
tary's Red Plasma Field. Not only was 
it to be a great game but November 29 
marked the dedication of Red Plasma 
Field in honor of Dr. Red Plasma, one 
of Arizona Military's all time greats who 
is the author of such blood curdling 
works as Kiss the Blood Off My Phal- 
anges; Blood, Sweat, and Lifeboy; Blood 
and Guts; and the Greenback-a-Month 
Club's current best seller about Dr. 
Plasma's alma-mater, Ruptures Univer- 
sity, I'd Bleed to Death For Dear Old 
Ruptures, published by Corpuscle and 
Carbuncle of Hemophilia, Louisiana. 

As for the contest, it was bitterly 
fought with neither team giving nor ask- 
ing quarter as each received full scholar- 
ships from outstanding alumni. Mar- 
maduke was supported by Alger Hiss, 
who made his fortune selling pumpkins 
and papers to Whittaker Chambers while 
Horace Shultz's alumni sugar daddy was 
Thomas A. Edison who made his mil- 
lions when he saw the light. 


with the crucial struggle. 

Now, on 

The first half ended 0-0 with neither 
team penetrating either 40-yard line. 
All play took place within the forties 
with the blocking and tackling so vicious 
that the quarterbacks carried towels so 
as to wipe the blood out of their eyes 
when it came trickling down from their 
slightly inundated craniums. By half- 
time only twelve men remained on each 
side, the others being rushed to the mor- 
gue, hospital, or turning in their Cadil- 
lacs and mortgages on laundries and 
sporting goods stores because play was 
too, too, vicious. This can be described 
by Percival Ignacz von Fauntleroy of 
Jackass Crossroads, Kentucky, second 
string center for the New Jersey Tech 
Purple Platypuses, who said, "... I did 
not mind roughness, but Arizona's con- 
stant interference with our pass plays 
was too, too, much. To say the least, 
it was absolutely unbearable. Perhaps 
a little pushing on their part can be ex- 
cused but gouging out eyes, tearing off 
ears, and smashing limbs was too much. 
Why a gentleman can get hurt out there. 
Nope, I've had enough of this football 
. on to Harvard." 


Then the second half started only after 
a bull-dozer cleaned the snow and bodies 
off the field as the 110 piece N. J. Tech 
band had a little squabble with the 110 
piece Arizona Military band. Upon count- 
ing the victims, 46 Techs were dead with 
12 wounded while Arizona escaped with 
29 deaths and 86 Vz wounded. That half 
was the basoon player who blew only 
half notes. According to band director 
George P. Rottenledge of New Jersey 
Tech, sousaphone player number seven 
of the Arizona band started it all when 
he winked at NJT drum majorette An- 
namayabella Up, a soprano hog-calling 
major from Twin Pigs, Montana. An- 
namayabella Up's boyfriend, Johann Se- 
bastian Muck, punched the sousaphonist 
during the Star Spangled Banner and the 
sousaphonist threatened to get back at 
half-time. He did, at the outset of the 
half-time show when both bands passed 
each other while playing My Darling 
Clementine in honor of Arizona's Dean 
Clementine Dentsky, who was serving 
her 89th year as Arizona's Dean 

of Women, Class II. You see, at Ari- 
zona Military the girls are classed into 
two groups, I and II. There are 4\ 
classed in group I and they are the gi r j s 
who are there for a purpose while 3,456 
are classed in II and they are there for 
a man. In other words, between week- 
end guests. 

Well, anyway, Annamayabella Up' 3 
boyfriend had his saxophone wrapped 
around his neck and his sheet music 
stuffed in his ear. What they did with 
the contraption that held the sheet music 
cannot be mentioned here. When a lit- 
tle skirmish ensued, both bands started 
in and the stands screamed and howled 
in bloody delight until 120 Arizona State 
Police, a Hot Tamale County Sheriff 
three blood hounds, and Dagmar sep- 
arated the maddening mob of mercilessly 
mauling musicians. However, all sub- 
sided and eventually both teams took 
to the field again. 


Glockenspiel O'Haggerty, presently 
head of O'Haggerty, O'Haggerty, Mc- 
Dougal, and Shlumptzikov, kicked off 
for Arizona Military with Marmaduke 
Zenicelli taking it on his one and racing 
99 yards for a touchdown. The stadium 
roared and rocked and shrieked delirious- 
ly. Pandemonium broke loose! A fifth 
was passed out! Everybody enjoyed that 
and things became even wilder. It took 
fifteen minutes to calm the throng so 
that signal's could be heard to kick the 
extra point. But, alas! The stadium grew 
quiet, exceptionally quiet. For there was 
Umpire Harry Vaughn of Pendergast U. 
with a red pastel mink flag on the twelve 
yard line. A cold chill swept the huge 
stadium as though a deep freeze set in. 
The official signaled and the New Jersey 
stands went into an uproar because 
"holding" was charged against the NJT 
line. "Boo, boo, boo," went the Jersey 
side. "Ha, ha, ha," went the Arizona 
side. Before anybody knew what hap- 
pened Rogers and Hammerstein picked 
up the chant and wrote Bali Hai. By 
now the governor of New Jersey ran on 
the field and demanded an explanation 
while the governor of Arizona showed 
his good sportsmanship by offering the 
New Jersey governor a cactus plant so 
that peace could prevail and that New 
Jersey could get the point. "No, no, 
Mr. Governor," yelled the official. "There 
is no point beacuse the ball comes back. 
New Jersey Tech was holding! Sure 
enough there was NJT line man Ichabod 
Ginchginder "holding" Arizona Bob 
White's head while they sped White to a 
hospital. Penalized fifteen yards, or right 
to the goal line, Marmaduke saw but 
one thing to do — pass! He took the ball 
and sailed an aerial down to the 50-yard 
line where end Sticky Fingers hauled in 
the leather and raced forty-nine yards 
to the one where he stopped because it 
was Marmaduke's turn for a haircut at 
Carl's this week, and so Marmaduke had 
to score. First and goal to go on the 
one and what does Marmaduke call? 
Pass! Marmaduke stepped back on the 
twenty, took the ball from center Inda 
Middle and passed over the line to Fin- 
gers. Yeow, Touchdown! No haircut 

NJT 7-0 

Now all Hades broke loose as the New 
Jersey side went wild again. The band 
struck up and the governor lead the en- 
tire section in the song, On the Good 
Old Jersey Shore or better known around 
here as Take Me Back To My Old Long 
Branch Shack. Now came the time for 
the conversion. Marmaduke stepped 
back while Fingers held. The signals 
were barked, "8-9-Cumberland-10-hike," 
snap, the ball came back, the boot was 
up — good! Everything was flying on the 
New Jersey side; it looked like Newark 
Airport during an air show. The score 
was 7-0. The purple clad warriors from

Bologna Bowl Features 
L V and School Bands 

On Saturday, November 10, Lebanon 
Valley students, parents, and fans wit- 
nessed the first annual Bologna Bowl 
game, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of 
Lebanon. The game was preceded by a 
parade from the town to the football 
stadium which featured eight bands from 
the vicinity. Those bands marching were, 
in order of appearance, the Lebanon Vai- 
j e y Band, the Lebanon High School 
Band, the Lincoln Republican Drum 
Corps, Lebanon Catholic High School 
Band, the Harrison Junior High School 
Band, the VFW Drum Corps, the Henry 
Houck Band, and the Harding Junior 
High School Band. 

On the field the Lebanon Valley Band 
entertained the crowd with a three-way 
salute to the Kiwanis Club, the parents, 
and the armed forces. Taking its firtrt 
formation, the band formed a circle "K," 
the emblem of the Kiwanis Club, and 
went immediately into a tent and camp- 
fire to signify the camps to which the 
Kiwanis Club is contributing the pro- 

| ceeds of the game. In honor of the par- 
ents the band formed the words "Ma M 
and "Pa" in unique fashion, then brought 
back the good old days with a revolving 
mill wheel and the song Down by the 
Old Mill Stream. To salute the service- 
men the band reminded the spectators of 
the expanse of American country "from 
the East to the West," from its sky- 
scrapers to its movie cameras, and play- 
ed God Bless America. To a medley of 
service tunes they moved into a shield 
formation. Reversing to the other side 
of the field, they paid tribute to Western 
Maryland with "W" and "M". For the 
first time the Lebanon Valley Band spell- 
ed "LVC" in script for the Alma Mater. 
This feat has rarely been done by other 

This last stadium performance of the 
band this football season has topped all. 
Credit for the game shows belongs to Pro- 
fessor Rutledge and George Rutledge, 
creator and drill-master, to the band 
members, and to all those who helped in 
the organization of the projects.

Two excellent books there for those who 
wish to learn more about contemporary 
music (all kinds) are This Modern Mus-

and Our Contemporay Composers, both 
by John Tasker Howard. Two recom-

Schoenberg, which will be heard for the 
first time in America at the Philhar-

conclude with two Chorale-Preludes by 
Bach adapted by Schoenberg. 

Members of the College Orchestra 
spent some time Monday morning test- 
ing acoustics in the gym preparatory to 
the Inter-Collegiate Orchestra's arrival. 
The auxiliary gym was chosen, but some 
absorbers on the walls would help some 
more. The problem is to find something 
to hang them to. In tune with the oc- 
casion are the following tales: 

A wealthy patron of the arts had a son 
who wanted to be a conductor, so he as- 
sembled an orchestra for him to work 
with. At the first rehearsal the son, 
although flustered as he faced the men 
with their many different kinds of instru- 
ments, plunged right into his job. In 
the midst of a soft passage for strings, 
the young man unconsciously threw a 
eue to the tympani player, who instantly 
gave out a tremen .ous clash. Furiously 
he stopped the orchestra, glared at the 
fiddle section, and shouted, "Who did 

After a badly performed number was 
0v er during a symphony concert, the con- 
ductor leaned down to speak to his first 
Vl olinist. "I say, whatever key were you

jhe violinist readily enough. "Skeleton

you mean?" "Fits anything," was

Parents ^Weekend 

Parents Weekend, a new event which 
combines activities of Mother's Week- 
End and Dads' Day, was conducted on 
campus by the Student Christian Asso- 
ciation Saturday, November 10. Over 
five hundred students and parents attend- 
ed the festivities on campus. 

Parents who arrived in the morning 
were conducted around the campus or 
were taken to the Central Pennsylvania 
Field Hockey Tournament which was be- 
ing held on the athletic field. From one 
to five in the afternoon open house was 
held in the girls' dorms for those who 
did not attend the football game with 
Western Maryland at Lebanon. 

Returning from the game, parents 
were welcomed at the buffet luncheon 
held in the main dining room. At 7 
P. M., the SCA Cabinet presented an 
hour's entertainment consisting of two 
skits, one a three-part take-off on dorm 
life complete to Miss Gillespie who 
broke up a quiet hour get-together in 
the girls' dorm, and a class room par- 
ody, plus community singing. The day 
ended with the Gobble Wobble, a dance 
sponsored by the Junior Class and held 
in the Main Gym. 

The SFC Report 
To the Students 

At the last Student-Faculty Council 
meeting Ed Tesnar, the chairman of tne 
committee on the budget for SFC, re- 
quested that all organizations submit 
to him a budget of the funds each would 
need from SFC for the year. This plan 
was adopted in order to assure each or- 
ganization a fair share of SFC funds. 
It was also emphasized that this money 
would be available to an organization 
for expenses incurred in sponsoring a 
non-profit activity that is open to the 
entire college. Bills may then be submit- 
ted for payment by the Council. 

The Cheerleader "s constitution was ap- 
proved by the Student-Faculty Council, 
and was then recommended to the facul- 
ty for their approval. 

President Sample also announced that 
the members of SFC will be placed on 
bulletin-board duty. Under this plan each 
member of Student-Faculty Council will 
be responsible for the bulletin board for 
one week. The name of the person in 
charge of the bulletin board for each 
week will be posted the week before.

Music by the Jazz Concert Band 

Mrs. Maud Laughlin, head of the His- 
tory Department of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege, spoke to the Political Science Club, 
Friday, November 9, at the club's first 
social which was held in Delphian Hall. 
Mrs. Laughlin reviewed the events of her 
trip through Italy which she took after 
completing her series of lectures at Ox- 

Refreshments and an hour of socializ- 
ing completed the evening's entertain- 
ment. The social was arranged by the 
social committee: Betty Criswell, chair- 
man, Jim Quick and Mickey Begg, mem- 

At the regular meeting held last Thurs- 
day, November 8, Joe Shemeta, '52, was 
appointed by President Evelyn Toser as 
chairman of the Intercollegiate Confer- 
ence on Government which will be held 
in the spring in Harrisburg. As his as- 
sistants he chose Robert Glock, '52, and 
Samuel Yeagley, '54. This committee, 
as are all committees in the club, is ap- 
pointed by the president in accordance 
with the constitution of the club. 

Chairman Joe Shemeta accepted the 
appointment with a short speech in 
which he stated that he was honored by 
the position and hoped that, with the 
cooperation of the members of the club, 
he would be able to make Lebanon Val- 
ley an influential school in the annual 
meeting which this year will take the 
form of a national party convention.

Jersey jogged upfield while Arizona Mili- 
tary hung their heads in shame. They 
were scored on! 

Marmaduke kicked off and from there 
on it was ferocious battle to the finish. 
Finally, with both sides in a state of col- 
lapse and the rooters limp with excite- 
ment, the game ended and 4,000 report- 
ers raced each other to the only press 
phone in the stadium so that their paper 
may be the first to give the world the 
score. But as fate would have it, the 
New York Times reporter, a young kid 
who knew nothing about football, named 
Frank Leahy, got there first because he 
had a seat in section IV. 


But, as we look back to that great day 
in 1911 and celebrate the anniversary of 
the occasion we think of the great half- 
time speech by New Jersey Tech's coach, 
the former All-Korean tackle from Kae- 
song Poly, Timothy "Tear Them To Tat- 
ters" Thompson. 

It was that speech which we have re- 
corded for posterity that saved the day 
for dear NJT. Coach Thompson assem- 
bled his men and pointing to them indi- 
vidually he said, "You must pitch in to 
do your part, and you must pitch in to 
do your part. And if you all don't pitch 
in and do your parts, we won't have a 
part to pitch in."

Bowl Bound Dutchmen Face Juniatans at Huntingdon 

Western Maryland Terrors 
Trip Up Valleyites 20- 12 

Western Maryland continued to hold 
its jinx over Lebanon Valley football 
teams on Saturday afternoon as the 
Green Terrors from Westminster regis- 
tered a 20-12 victory over the Flying 
Dutchmen from Annville before 5,000 
in the First Annual Bologna Bowl game 
sponsored by the Lebanon Kiwanis Club 
for their camp fund. The game marked 
the fifth in a series which began back in 
1914 when the Blue and White won then 
only grid contest from the boys below 
the Mason-Dixon Line by a 21-3 count. 
The series was resumed in 1948 with 
the Dutchmen losing ever since 13-0, 
39-7, 19-7, and on Saturday, 20-12. 

Saturday's win marked the seventh 
straight for the undefeated and untied 
Green and Gold clad Terrors and their 
twelfth consecutive win over a two year 
span. For the Dutchmen it was their 
first defeat of the season at the hands 
of a college team after having mowed 
down six opponents while losing only to 
powerful Indiantown Gap Military Res- 
ervation's combine by five points, 
12-7. Saturday's fray saw the first 
team kick an extra point against 
the Dutchmen this year; the first col- 
lege team to score more than one touch- 
down on them; and the Marylanders also 
have the distinction of registering the 
most points against the Dutchmen this 
season, the previous high being the 12 
by the Gap. 

It was a perfect football afternoon 
with the weather as though it had been 
ordered to be that way. It looked as 
though the Dutchmen would be on their 
way to another triumph as they held the 
big Terrors at bay by possessing a 6-0 
lead after a well fought first half which 
saw the eleven of Coach Ralph Ricker 
outplay the Maryland visitors and stave 
off any possible scoring threats by the 
single-wing team from the South. The 
Rickermen scored their first touchdown 
after a 70-yard drive which saw Walt 
Shonosky plunge over from the one for a 
marker in the second period. George 
Cardone's boot for the bonus marker 
missed its usual place and the Valleyites 
settled for thtft 6-0 lead at intermission. 

It was taking advanatge of the breaks 
in the third quarter that won the game 
for the neat blocking and hard running 
Rebels. The Terrors recovered a Dutch- 
men fumble on the fifteen yard line and 
their fullback, Warren McFague, took 
the pigskin over on the fifth play after- 
wards, while Ira Zepp converted to give 
them a 7-6 lead. After receiving the 
kickoff the Valley kicked out on their 
own 42 and in eleven plays McFague 
was the man of the hour for Western 
Maryland as he rushed into the end zone 
from the one yard line again after he and 
Ray Stevenson combined in lugging the 
leather to that hallowed goal line. Zepp 
made good on his kick and the Dutch- 
men were stunned 14-6. 

On the ensuing kickoff the Green and 
Gold team pulled an on-side kick and 
took possession of the ball on the Valley 
26. A fifteen yard penalty couldn't have 
arrived at a better time for the Mary- 
landers and that set the porkhide on the 
11. After a two yard gain, Stevenson 
pased to Walt Hart for the final WMC 
TD. Zepp missed the PAT. 


The fighting Dutchmen revived to an 
extent in the finale as they traversed 
upfield 79 yards behind the accurate 
tossing of versatile quarterback Lou Sor- 
rentino. The Valley's brilliant sophomore 
signal-caller flipped an aerial to Joe Ox- 
ley to notch the last scoring for the da>. 
Cardone's kick bounced off the goal 

There was ample time for the Dutch- 

men to possibly have pulled the game out 
of the fire, or at least to have scored 
again, but the stout Western Maryland 
defense and the alertness on their pari 
was too keen to cope with. All througn- 
out the contest the Terror secondary had 
the LV passing plays which called for 
aerials about ten yards over the center 
of the line bottled up and thus it wasn't 
until the passes began flying to the left 
that the Dutchmen really clicked. The 
Annville eleven just couldn't seem to get 
going after they scored that second 
touchdown, although they desperately 
tried to. The sharp, well-executed block- 
ing and tackling of the Marylanders 
proved more effective than the seemingly 
inadequate line play of the Blue and 
White. The rugged Valley line which no 
one but Indiantown Gap managed to 
dent to any real avail heretofore, just 
could not handle the Green Terrors in 
the last half. On top of all this, Sorren- 
tino was injured and removed from the 
game in the fourth quarter and that 
stymied the Dutchmen to a certain ex- 
tent even though capable co-captain 
Freddy Sample took over. Lou came 
back in and ended the game with a thrill- 
ing dash which brought the crowd to its 
feet as he roared downfield only to be 
thrown out of bounds in Western Mary- 
land territory. 

In the final analysis it was a game 
where the breaks seemed to be in the 
visitors' favor. The phrase, "It all de- 
pends on how the ball bounces," applies 
perfectly to Western Maryland's success 
on Saturday. The Ducthmen fumbled 
five times and the Rebel opportunists re- 
covered four of them at the most oppor 
tune time in the most opportune places. 
The Flying Dutchmen must be congratu- 
lated for their comeback against so 
strong a team, however, as they mentally 
survived the quick twenty point Green 
Terror splurge and roared back to score 
another touchdown. To bad, though, 
Lady Luck was not with the Dutchmen 
and although there were possibilities in 
that finale, none materialized.

game schedule undefeated and untied, 
climaxing the successful '50 campaign 
by defeating Emory and Henry College 
in the Tangerine Bowl. This Emory 
and Henry played in last year's Burley 
Bowl defeating Appalachian State Col- 
lege of Boone, North Carolina 26-6 and 
then tangled with Morris Harvey in the 
Tangerine affair. 

Probably the most outstanding oppon- 
ent faced by the Valley's newest rival, 
last year, was Kent State of Ohio. This 
is the same school that held rampaging 
Bucknell to a 13-7 win earlier this sea- 
son. Morris Harvey opened the 1951 
season by meeting Ohio University and 
losing a hard fought decision to them. 
They also played Kent State this year 
and their coach's Alma Mater, Marshall 
College of West Virginia, which usually 
fields a good small college club. This 
Saturday, while the Dutchmen are at 
Juniata, the Morris Harvey eleven will 
meet a powerful Camp Lejeune military 
team and this should help determine 
more exactly what kind of club the West 
Virginians have in that powerful Camp 
Lejeune has been selected to play in the 
Cigar Bowl against another top flight 
service team. 

This game will mark the second post 
season football game in LV's history, 
the first one taking place in 1935 when 
the Flying Dutchmen of that year travel- 
ed to Tampa, Florida and beat the Uni- 
versity of Tampa 6-0 on Christmas Day.

See You At 


The Place Where Students Congregate 
For a Bite to Eat In a Cheerful 

On Saturday afternoon, win or lose 
the 1951 edition of the Flying Dutchmen 
footballers will ring down the curtain 
on one of the most successful seasons i n 
Lebanon Valley's history when they meet 
the Juniata College eleven at Hunting 

The Blue and White, who stand 6-2 
for the season, will be facing a Juniata 
club which has won 3, lost 2, and tied 
one. The Indians have beaten Swarth- 
more 13-7, Haverford 34-6, and Grove" 
City 13-7. They have lost to Westmins- 
ter 38-13, and to undefeated Susquehan- 
na 20-12. Allegheny fought the Indians 
to a 20-20 deadlock. 

It will be two men from the same 
Alma Mater, Penn State, matching 
coaching as the Valley's Ralph "Dutch" 
Ricker will lead his team against the 
Redmen of Bill Smaltz. This will mark 
the nineteenth contest in a strictly one- 
sided series as the Blue and White have 
compiled sixteen wins against one for 
Juniata with the 1934 tussle ending i n a 
scoreless tie. The Valley-Juniata series 
began in 1920 when the Dutchmen 
emerged victorious 37-0. From that time 
on it was not until the '34 game that 
the Blue and White managed to halt the 
Valley victimizing of the Indians. The 
Valley rolled over all Juniata teams until 
the 1947 game when an over-confident 
band of Flying Dutchmen, fresh from 
stunningly upsetting a bowl-bound Scran- 
ton University aggregation 13-7, traveled 
to Huntingdon and was itself upended 
20-6, Juniata scoring more points in that 
game than it had done since the incep- 
tion of the series. The following year 
Juniata came to Lebanon with what v/as 
termed the best team in Juniata history. 
With Andy Kerr at the helm and the 
Valley's great Henry DiJohnson on the 
field, the Flying Dutchmen whipped the 
Juniatans 27-8, and completely halted, 
except for a long touchdown run, their 
fast-stepping "Meteor Mike" Dzvonar. 
However, the series was suspended until 
this year and this is not uncommon since 
this has been done before up through the 
years with the Indians. 

As in 1948, when "Meteor Mike" ap- 
peared here, the Juniatans will show off 
another flashy-named back on Saturday 
in the form of Orlando "Lighthorse Lun- 
dy" Loschiavo, of Ambridge. This 150 
lb., 5' 8" back has been the crux of the 
Juniata offense, as he is leading the In- 
juns in touchdowns scored. 

Should the Dutchmen beat the In- 
dians, it will mark them as the second 
most winning football team in Lebanon 
Valley's history, as only the 1902 Valley 
eleven won more than seven games, 
winding up their season with eight wins 
and five losses. The best records since 
then were all as good as this season's 
with six wins being posted each time. 
In 1914 Coach Roy J. Guyer's team end- 
ed the season with 6-2 while three of 
Coach Jerome W. Frock's squads won 
six victories. The 1935 eleven had a 
6-4 record; the 1938 team 6-2; and the 
1939 aggregation wound up 6-3. 

Except for a few minor injuries, the 
Blue and White came out of the West- 
ern Maryland fray in good physical con- 
dition, and should prove a match for the 
Juniata Club.

Music Majors Participate 
In Noted Educators Clinic 

At 1 P. M. on Monday, December 3, 
all of the conservatory students packed 
themselves into Kalo Hall for an en- 
joyable two hours under the supervision 
of Mrs. Beatrice P. Krone, author, lec- 
turer, and one of the most progressive 
music educators in the country today. 
Her demonstration, of maximum prac- 
itcal value to Lebanon Valley's music 
education students, was that of music 
participation in the elementary and sec- 
ondary school, with emphasis on creative 
musical activity. 

Not a mere lecture, Mrs. Krone's pre- 
sentation was truly one of participation 
foj^the audience, which she uses as her 
teaching unit. With a philosophy that 
music is really a universal language 
which everyone can speak, understand, 
and enjoy, she demonstrated techniques 
w hich result in satisfaction for every pu- 
Pri, whatever the age or level of musical 
ability or achievement, through the uss 
°f rhythm instruments, the auto-harp, 
counter-melodies and rhythms, and many 
other devices. The song material she 
Us ed is to be found in a series of sonc 
b °oks entitled, A World in Tune, of 
w hich she is co-author with her husband, 
Max T. Krone. 

Holding Bachelor's and Master's de- 
§ r ees from the University of Wisconsin, 
Mrs. Krone is currently lecturing and 
Writing during the school year and teach- 
ing during the summers at the Idyllwood 
Sc hool of Music and the Arts, which is 
associated with the University of South- 
California. Currently conducting 


w °rkshops and clinics in colleges in this 
f re a, her work was a feature attraction 
ln the form of four clinic sessions in ele- 
mentary music at the recent Pennsylva- 
nia Music Educators Convention in Har- 
r isburg. 

Shemeta Report 
To Pol Sci Club 
On ICG Plan 

The Political Science Club of Lebanon 
Valley College met on Thursday, No- 
vember 29. 

The student chairman of the Intercol- 
legiate Conference on Government, Joe 
Shemeta, presented a summary of the 
action taken at the meeting of the execu- 
tive committee in Harrisburg on Novem- 
ber 11. He reported that the delegates 
attending the ICG Conference, which 
this year will be a model political con- 
vention, will be addressed by representa- 
tives of both major political parties and 
by Governor Fine of Pennsylvania. The 
Central Region, of which Lebanon Vai- 
ley is a part, will deal with that part of 
the platform concerned with civil rights. 
In order to unify our region, the student 
chairmen and the advisors met on De- 
cember 9 in Hershey. 

According to the report, the schedule 
of the convention will be compressed so 
as to abolish the Sunday morning and 
early afternoon meetings which made 
it difficult for delegates from distant col- 
leges to return ot their campuses by eve- 
ning. The new, stepped up schedule will 
allow the delegates to conclude their ses- 
sions late Saturday afternoon. 

The social committee announced that 
the formal social of the Political Science 
Club will be held February 2 and urged 
all members to plan to attend. In ac- 
cordance with the bill passed earlier this 
year, all old members will be notified of 
this meeting. The president announced 
the appointment of Mary Louise Young 
to the Social Committee. 

President Receives Desk 
At FTA Christmas Partv 


The auxiliary gym in the Lynch Mem- 
orial Physical Education Building was 
the scene of the Future Teachers of Am- 
erica's Christmas party on Tuesday 
night, December 4. Program chairman 
Bill Shoppell led the group in the sing- 
ing of rounds and Christmas carols. For 
the devotional part of the program he 
read the Christmas story, "Why the 
Chimes Rang." Dave Council provided 
background music for this story on the 
piano and chimes. 

Professor McKlveen's daughter, Heien 
Jo, dressed as an Indian girl (Indian giv- 
er), presented a small miniature desk to 
president Fred Sample. He will pass the 
desk, which was made by James Reber 
of Jonestown, to his successor at the an- 
nual banquet in May. The names of the 
presidents of the organization and the 
dates they served in office will be engrav- 
ed on the desk. 

After having the yearbook picture tak- 
en and playing several memory games, 
the group was served refreshments by 
Elaine Barron and her committee. Those 
at the meeting also had an opportunity 
to hear the beginning of the program 
again, for the devotions and carol sing- 
ing, which were recorded, were playei 
back on the tape recorder. 

At the next meeting, January 8, J. 
Gordon Starr, assistant county superin- 
tendent of schools in the Lebanon area, 
will conduct unrehearsed actual inter- 
views with three senior FTA members 
who are applying for teaching positions. 

Hard Work Produces 
Fine Festival Program 

When Lebanon Valley played host to 
nineteen colleges at the third annual Col- 
legiate Symphony Orchestra festival No- 
vember 28 to 30, a sincere and hard- 
working group of students participated. 
For the three days the students worked 
from eight o'clock in the morning until 
almost ten o'clock at night under the in- 
spiring direction of Edwin McArthur in 
preparation for the Friday night concert. 
All reports have indicated that Mr. Mc- 
Arthur was much admired and appreci- 
ated for his outstanding and ever patient 
attitude toward the students working 
under him. The daily practice produced 
outstanding results, as all concert-goers 
discovered at the performance in the 
Forum on Friday evening, November 

Entertainment was provided for the 
orchestra in the form of a dance in the 
auxiliary gym on Thursday night. Hard 
work merited recreation, and the sounds 
that came from the gym were hardly- 
representative of the serious frowns of 
earnest concentration and silence that 
prevailed at the rehearsals. A full dance 
band played for the students. 

The orchestra program this year in 
eluded five numbers: Mozart's Overture 
from The Marriage of Figaro, Tschai 
kowsky's Symphony No. 6 (Pathetique), 
The Suite of Through the Looking Glass 
by Taylor, Humperdinck's "Prayer and 
Dream Pantomime" from Hansel and 
Gretel, and "The Waltz of the Flowers" 
from Tschaikowsky's Nutcracker Suite, 

Nine seniors from Lebanon Valley 
College have been chosen for recognition 
COLLEGES, a national organization 
which strives to honor outstanding stu- 
dents and leaders. Five of the students 
are from the college and four from the 
conservatory of music. Those from the 
college are Lois Adams, Betty Bakley, 
Fred Sample, Sterling Strause, and Ed 
Tesnar. The conservatory students are 
Alden Biely, Elma Breidenstine, George 
Rutledge, and Dolores Zarker. 

These students were selected for this 
honor following their nomination to the 
national organization by a faculty com- 
mittee composed of Dean A. H. M. 
Stonecipher, Dean William Hays, Dean 
Constance Dent, Miss Mary Gillespie, 
and Professor Theodore Keller. The cri- 
teria used by this committee as a basis 
for their choices were as follows: excel- 
lence and sincerity in scholarship, lead- 
ership and participation in extracurricu- 
lar and academic activities, citizenship 
and service to the school, and promise 
of future usefulness to business and so- 

As a token of their selection to this 
organization, the students will receive a 
certificate of recognition awarded by the 
organization and presented at the school, 
recognition in the annual publication for 
the year during which he was selected in 
the form of a writeup of his college and 
personal record, and benefits of the Stu- 
dents Placement Service provided by the 
organization if he needs assistance in 
making employment contacts or supply- 
ing other recommendations. 

There is no competition among the 
various institutions submitting nomina 
tions to this organization, since curricula 
and extracurricular programs differ so 
widely. Each school is assigned a separ- 
ate quota large enough to give a well- 
rounded representation of the student 
body, small enough to confine nomina- 
tions to an exceptional group of stu- 
dents, and based upon current enroll-

Tax Class Visits 
Armstrong Cork Co. 

Fifteen students of Professor Riley's 
Income Tax Class journeyed to Lancas- 
ter Wednesday, November 28, to spend a 
half day as guests of the Armstrong 
Cork Company. Upon arrival at the 
plant office the group was introduced 
to the great variety of products manu- 
factured by the company. A conducted 
tour of the plant later revealed many in- 
teresting processes in the manufacture of 
linoleum floor coverings. Following the 
plant tour the group listened to a lec 
ture on plant policy and accounting prir 
ciples given by Mr. Mamma , plant 
comptroller. The trip was thoroughly en 
joyed by all who attended. 

Knights Sponsor Dances 
After Basketball Games 

The Knights of the Valley will con- 
tinue to sponsor dances after the home 
basketball games which are held on Sat- 
urday nights following the Christmas 
vacation. These record dances were be- 
gun as as experiment after the first two 
home games and were deemed successfu' 
enough to continue. Donations received 
will be used to purchase new records. 

The annual Christmas card sale of the 
Knights of the Valley is rapidly drawin b 
to a close and the sale again promises to 
be successful. Ed Tesnar has served as 
chairman of the sale. 

At the last meeting before the holidays 
the Knights climaxed the year 1951 with 
a Christmas celebration. . Refreshments 
were served and gifts exchanged. Guests 
of honor were Richie Furda, Marty 
Gluntz, Mark Heberling, and Dick Mub- 
selman, all of whom are now going 
through a period of initiation into the 
Knights of the Valley. 

The Knights sponsored the showing of 
Bill Craighead's films taken at the Burley 
Bowl game.

Conserv Notes 

So much activity has taken place since the last issue of La Vie that a short 
review should be in order. 

LVTV was a grand success — every inch of it from John Ralston's "Hildegard" 
personality to Mark Schneiderhan's toe dancing . . . Topping the applause meter 
in the direction of the enlightening contributions of the professors was the perform 
ance of the hillbilly applicants with the bottle-blowing accompaniment of "Bob 
bie" Smith and his assistants to "Ma" Morris' melodious recorder tones . . . But 
"Paula's Plight," something new in light opera, was the best piece of tomfoolery 
of the whole evening. Scott Hamor was a natural for his role, and Lynn Blecker 
— well, it was some "plight." 

The first meeting of the In-and About Harrisburg Music Educators Club to 
which Conserve seniors belong was held in conjunction with the first general 
session and dinner of the PMEA Convention, Thursday evening, Nov. 29. Those 
who attended were greatly impressed with the message of Marguerite Hood, presi- 
dent of the National Conference. Before she left the gathering to make a train 
back to Michigan where the next day she was to participate in a similar state 
convention, she gave a preview of some of the 153 events that will be a part of 
the Biennial Convention of the MENC to take place in Philadelphia beginning on 
Friday evening, March 21, and closing Wednesday evening, March 26. The All- 
State High School Chorus, the Army Air Force Band, the University of Michigan 
Band, the Spring Music Festival presentation of the Phila. schools, and a rehearsal 
of the Philadelphia Orchestra with the Temple University Choir of the Requiem 
for a later performance are only a few of the outstanding attractions she men- 
tioned. Such an event will not take place in our state again until most of us are 
no longer music educators, and so students will be wise to take advantage of it 
and to begin saving now for the expense. 

Those who attended the concert of the Inter-Collegiate Orchestra had a 
treat in musical pleasure. The program (see article elsewhere) was of a good 
2 hours length and would have demanded the maximum from any professional 
orchestra. To those in the orchestra who will be conductors in their own right, 
the experience of working under McArthur, a fine personality as well as outstand- 
ing in musicianship, was extremely valuable. 

Lebanon Valley is proud of Prof. E. P. Rutledge's recent honor, that of being 
elected president of the College Directors' Association at the meeting of that group 
during the PMEA convention. He is credited with the idea of having a state 
festival in conjunction with the convention. 

If you saw several cars streaming up and down the road between Carlisle 
and Harrisburg on the evening of Saturday, December 1, they were merely filled 
with Conserve faculty, students, and alumni hunting for the Carlisle Country Club, 
scene of this year's Conserv Formal. The crowd included a good percentage of 
alumni. . . Joanne Bachman was having an enjoyable evening with Johnny Wal- 
ter, George Seyfert with a girl from home, and Jerry Nichols with her new friend 
Allen Koppenhaver, as well as were the Russos, Miss Morris and Dean Hays, and 
Tom Israel and Joan Spangler . . . The highlight of the evening was the Mexican 
Hat Dance, started by a brave few and concluded with a floor full of couples 
all in full swing. That was when Miss Morris exerted herself to the point of 
losing a shoe! ... An enjoybale evening was had by all. 

A good number of students and faculty of the college dotted the balcony rows 
at the Community theatre in Hershey Thanksgiving night for a La Traviata pro- 
duction. Vocally, musically, it was par excellence, but the dramatic intent seemed 
inadequate, especially in the last act. One remark overheard was that Violetta 
didn't begin dying soon enough.

the rest of the college in congratulat- 
ing Nick Bova for being selected on 
the Associated Press' All-Pennsylva-

being named to the second team Lit- 
tle All-America. The Valley's quar- 
terback, Lou Sorrentino, was named 
to the second team All-Pennsylvania 
and received honorable mention on 
the Little All-America Squad. 

John Buffamoyer and Sherdell Sny-

Good going, boys, your college is 
proud of you. 

L.W.R. Agenda 
Include Trips 

In the past several weeks the members 
of the Life Work Recruits Organization 
have taken two trips. 

On October 16 they were conducted 
on a tour of the Evangelical Press Build- 
ing in Harrisburg. This included a trip 
through the offices, the press rooms, the 
composing rooms, file rooms, and bind- 
ing and mailing rooms. 

Wednesday, November 7, twelve pre- 
theological members were the guests of 
the Evangelical School of Theology at 
Reading. The program included a cha- 
pel service, a social period, a refreshment 
period, and a trip through the dormi-

One of the advantages of attending 
a state university is that you have an 
opportunity to hear lectures by many 
outstanding people. Students at Iowa

heard a speech last week by Marguerite

the New York Herald Tribune. Miss 
Higgins, who has received the Pulitzer 
Prize for her coverage of the Korean 
battle, spoke on "Terrible Days in Korea 
— a Brief Moment in History."

"Blest Christmas morn ..." This was 
the day which saw new joy, new hope,

loveliest blessing God could bestow upon

The appearing of the Christ possessed 
the solemnity of an ordination, the hu-

The Burley Bowl 

By Jim Pacy 

What can be termed one of the most unique experiences in some of ou r 
College careers occured last month with the trip to Johnson City, Tennessee where 
our Flying Dutchmen footballers played in the Burley Bowl football game. It was. 
something that will not be hurriedly forgotten because I am almost positive that 
everyone enjoyed themselves. 

This was the Seventh Annual Burley Bowl, burley being some type of tobac- 
co. When Thanksgiving Day rolls around in Eastern Tennessee, it marks the 
height of the tobacco season and it is the day that King Tobacco comes into his 
own. Launching of the Burley Bowl game and festival comes almost simultane- 
ously with the opening of tobacco sales in Johnson City's warehouses where approxi- 
mately ten million pounds of the weed was auctioned off, bringing the owners 
close to some $5,000,000. 

After our team left Annville an Tuesday morning, they sped through south- 
ern Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia, stopping at Staunton, Virginia 
where they practiced that afternoon on the gridiron of the famed Staunton Military 
Academy, spending that evening at the Hotel Lincoln in Marion, Virginia. The 
next morning the Lebanon Valley official party, consisting of the team bus and 
two staff cars, continued on its way the entire length of the state of Virginia, 
rounding the bend of the state westward until it came to the city of Bristol which 
was fascinating in that its main street is split down the middle with an imaginary 
line, one side of the street and town being in Virginia with the other in Tennes- 
see. Traveling to the Tennessee border the Blue and White party was met by 
an escort of Tennessee State Police and squired in that high fashion to the 
Burley Bowl headquarters in the John Sevier Hotel in Johnson City. The Hotel 
named in honor of the first governor of Tennessee, John Sevier. 

The Hotel's lobby had two signs on display, large enough to catch any- 
one's eyes from almost any angle of the lobby. One read "Welcome Lebanon 
Valley Flying Dutchmen" while the other read "Welcome Morris Harvey Golden 
Eagles." They were printed in the school's colors, our's in blue and white, and 
Morris Harvey's in maroon and gold. That afternoon the official parties of both 
schools, teams, coaches, and Burley Bowl officials, were feted at a luncheon 
given by the Johnson City Kiwanis. 

After the team was settled in the nice Sevier rooms the gala event sparked 
by the Thanksgiving Day atmosphere was opened officially with a festival pro- 
gram at the East Tennessee State College. There the feature affair was the 
pageant of thirty queen candidates one of whom became Miss Burley Bowl 1951. 
The event occured in East Tennessee's gym which can be definitely considered one 
of the most beautiful houses of physical education ever seen by the visitors. 

What can be termed the serious side of the celebration opened on Thanks- 
giving morning in the East Tennessee gym where thousands of residents paused 
to give thanks with Dr. Leonard Riggleman, president of Morris Harvey, speaking 
on, "The Way of Progress." A mass choir presented a vocal program, also. Ten- 
nessee's very congenial governor, the Honorable Mr. Gordon Browning, presented 
a brief welcome address and offered the opening praper. The governor by the 
way, won the friendship of both squads when he spoke so well of the game. He 
sang the "Tennessee Waltz" at the program which went on in East Tennessee's 
gym and then humorously remarked that he lost a dollar on Lebanon Valley, at 
the players banquet that evening. 

Then a mile long parade began, viewed by close to 50,000 specators. The 
parade consisted of about 100 units, including gorgeous community floats, circus 
figures, four bands, Burley Bowl officials, visiting dignitaries and was quite the 
spectacle although the team missed this dazzling show because they had already 
left for the scene of their football action for that day, the Roosevelt Memorial 

While the teams were preparing for the football clash, people began pouring 
into the stadium and the four bands kept things lively with their good music. 
The Bowl officials were of mind enough to invite two excellent high school bands 
whose colors were exactly the same as the two college's participating in the Bowl. 
Unfortunately we never learned the name of the snappy blue and white clad 
band which played so well. 

As for the game, you probably all know by this time that we dropped a 
close one, losing to Morris Harvey by 27-20, but as always there is much more 
to a football game than a score. It was a contest which resulted in Morris Har- 
vey players saying that the Valleymen were one of the most spirited and battling 
teams they have met all season. That is something to consider when we recall 
that Morris Harvey was the team that scrimmaged Virgina Military Institute be- 
fore the season and played Ohio University and Kent State, holding the latter to 
a 14-14 draw after the Kents all but beat all-conquering Bucknell, only to lose 

The Golden Eagles had an exceptionally powerful ground attack led by their 
hard hitting Little All-America fullback, Dewey Romine, and a fine running half- 
back named Gene: Gurtis. For those of you who saw Bill Craighead's excellent 
movies of the game they were, numbers 47 and 21 respectively. 

As for LV, Lou Sorrentino tantalized the Southerners with his pitching ability 
to such an extent that at the players banquet that evening, the toastmaster asked 
if, "that boy who threw those long passes would please stand up." He then con- 
tinued, "I've never seen passes that long in this area before." Sorrentino tossed 
thirty times connecting on twelve for 143 yeards and the first Valley touchdown. 
Concerning this touchdown, it came after Morris Harvey made it 7-0. Lou found 
Ted Lauer alone and Lauer took in Sorrentino's pass racing for a score. Sports 
writer Tommy Hodge of the Johnson City Press-Chronicle, in his commentary 
on the game, stated that the aforementioned touchdown play was so perfect and 
that Morris Harvey's secondary was fooled to such an extent that "Lauer's grand- 
mother could have caught the pass without interference . . ." Jimmy Smyth in 
the same paper stated in reference to Lou, ". . . Sorrentino, the Flying Dutchman 
himself, almost stole the show. . ." The Knoxville Journal's Haywood Hays re- 
marked in his column, referring to Lou, ". . . Sorrentino, the Flying Dutchmen's 
great little quarterback, put on a one man show with a flurry of exciting passes." 
The Charleston, West Virginia Daily Mail went so far as to state, ". . . maybe 
Navy picked the wrong Sorrentino." All this coupled with the fine play of the 
stalwarts in the Valley line wound, up the game with Burley Bowl officials call- 
ing this the best Burley Bowl ever. 

Morris Harvey jumped out to a 27-7 lead and that is where the boys from 
Annville stole the hearts of the Southerners as they roared back and with fi ve 
minutes to go made it 27-20 and were driving for a score. It was then that Sor- 
rentino brought the crowd to their feet as he reeled off one of his neat runs only 
to be halted. Morris Harvey intercepted one of our passes and that is where that 
faint hope of pulling this one out of the fire fizzled out. However, that come- 
back pleased the 9,000 fans to no end and it was a pleasure to look out of t° e 
press box and see people cheering for a team they probably never heard of several

The Sixth Column 

"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire . . ." All the comforts of home, shoes 
off, soft chair, the mint julep, the Christmas music, with the trimmings portray 
the main feature of what is known as the perfect vacation for the college student. 
All this can be had at no extra traveling expenses except the fare home. May 
you enjoy every minute of it. 

The Coming Attractions 

Kalo-Delphian has selected this year's big production; it's The Silver Whistle. 
philo-Clio's play So This is London and the fast humor helped weaken the walls 
f Engle Hall last Friday evening. Prof. McKlveen, who directed the play made 
use of his tape recorder for the rehearsal so that the accomplished thespians 
could improve the rough spots— a great idea. ... the Junior Class will be the 
host for our first weekend back on campus after the new year . . . this may be 
slightly early for publication but Gander Weekend is the first weekend in February 
^nuff said. 

The Christmas Present (tense, that is) 

The Dinner-Dance was worth looking forward to this year . . . Mrs. Millard 
did a beautiful job of the menu — a woman with ideas . . . Jiggerboard handled 
the gory details . . . Men's Senate handled the dance . . . and a good time was 
had by all. 

Speaking of presents, Stephen Potter (no, he's not a student here) put the 
conventional point across in his article in the December issue of the Atlantic 
Monthly, "Christmas Ship or, The Art of Giving and Receiving." He claims that 
"it's a good idea to give expensive gifts to those to whom you owe money." Also 
he suggests for the-right-in-one's-home gift, "one gives the present one wants one- 
self." Never let it be said that The Atlantic is an intellect magazine — it's got 

For the remainder of the column, I'll just relax and let the ole Christmas 
spirit move me. What could be better than a Christmas list? 
Lemmee think . . . 

For class treasurers — I'll pay my class dues. 
For my roommate — a world full of sympathy. 
For the brain who sits beside me in Spanish — my life. 
For Mrs. Millard — the suggestion that she publish a book of ideas. 
For Miss Gillespie — a pair of lead boots so that we can hear her coming. 
For the upperclassman football team — a carton of liniment and a masseur 
to match. 

For the underclassman football team — seven stretchers and fourteen band-aids. 
For Mr. Pacy — a long rest for his first metacarpal — no more hitch-hiking. 
For Dean Dent — a reprint of the newly suggested rules which were presented 
at the North Hall dorm party last Sunday evening. They are as follows: 

1. No classes until 10:00 a.m. 

2. Smoking is permitted anywhere. 

3. Noisy hours are from 1:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. 

4. All women students from sophomores on up may stay out until they 
come in. 

For Dean Hays — A copy of "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living." 
For the Freshmen — A new shipment of Dinks. 
For the Sophomores — A booby prize for the perfect record of losses. 
For the Juniors — The idea to have Stan Kenton for the Prom this year. 
For the Seniors — A free consultation on "Worthy use of leisure time" since 
the majority of the class are loading their schedules up with twelve whole hours. 
For the faculty — An aspirin factory. 

For myself — All I want for Christmas is more association neurons. 

THE BURLEY BOWL — From Page 2 

days before. The public address system announcer was a Morris Harvey man 
and he nearly had a fit before the clock ran out, with that possible chance of a 
tie still there. Morris Harvey assistant coach V. T. Adams, who some of us met 
while he scouted us at Juniata, said that he thought we were definitely on the 
way to beating them in that last period and was very glad to see that one come to 
an end. An interesting sidelight was that the Golden Eagle's extra point kicker, 
Claude "Hopper" Dent, one of the top men in the counry in that business, kick- 
ed his 27th straight after their third touchdown, having but one conversion at- 
tempt blocked all season. His attempt to make it 28 added to the Valley's prestige 
that afternoon as John Buffamoyer broke in and blocked Dent's try, thus, becom- 
ing the second to do so this year. 

In the final analysis, the Dutchmen gave a good account of themselves show- 
ing something which every coach wants his men to demonstrate and that was 
not giving up and coming back trying. It was a fitting finale for the ending of 
the college careers of Co-captains Fred Sample and Ed Tesnar and the other 
eight seniors and a fine way of ending the best season in Lebanon Valley's foot- 
ball history. 

After the game came the Players Banquet which featured the Governor of 
Tennessee and other speakers including Valley Head Coach Ralph Ricker, Professor 
O. P. Bollinger, who represented Dr. Miller, Dr. Riggleman the president of 
Morris Harvey, and their coach, Eddie King, who accepted the beautiful three 
foot high trophy, emblematic of the winner of the Burley Bowl. Both teams 
were awarded silver footballs for participating in the game. 

That night many varied activities were pursued by all in and out of the Hotel 
and in the morning it was all over as the Valleyites headed homeward to com- 
plete their Thanksgiving Vacations. 

One of the most peculiar things occured at the outset of the second half and 
could be compared to a circus. With the game under way, floats were rolling 
°ut of the stadium while the bands were also carrying on. Just before this, the 
governor crowned Miss Marcelline Sue Taylor of Sadie, Tennessee, as queen of 
the Burley Bowl. 

In covering pre-game stories on the Bowl, the Knoxville News-Sentinel told 
how Lebanon Valley and Morris Harvey came about as being selected to play in 
this contest. Numerous colleges were rated, their scores tabulated, their opposi- 
tion measured against the opposition other teams under consideration had faced. 
The list was gone over thoroughly at the first full meeting and certain teams ap- 
proved for feelers. However, the committee officially offered only two bids, and 
both were taken. Scouts were deployed to ball games involving those under con- 
sideration. Defeats or lack of impression erased one after the other. In the 
f inal anaylsis, Lebanon Valley and Morris Harvey were chosen because they were 
representative of the small college in America. They were representative be- 
cause their football teams measured up to the standards set by the Burley Bowl 
a °d the selection committee and because their schools were progressive minded, 
driving toward the fullfillment of the educational dream as well as the task of 
Physical education. 

In the words of sportscaster Jud Wilson, who interviewed me over WSM ot 
Nashville, ". . . it will be a long time before any of the people forget this fine 
exhibition of inter-sectional football." Adding to that we can state that, that 
80e s for all of us and does not concern the game alone, but the whole trip m

Mease Men Face the Juniata Five in Lynch Memorial 

Juniata College Game Will 
Round Out 1951 Basketball 

After facing the always powerful Rams 
of West Chester State Teachers College 
at West Chester last evening, the Flying 
Dutchmen of the court will round out 
the 1951 part of their current basketball 
campaign by meeting Juniata College in 
the Lynch Memorial on Saturday even- 
ing. However, before we go into this 
one, let us examine the happenings of 
the cage contests played to date. 

Coach Ralph R. Mease's crew opened 
its season on Saturday, December 1, fac- 
ing a lanky, Indiantown Gap Military 
Reservation team which was composed 
of ex-college stars and other very com- 
petent dribblers. With Philadelphia's ey- 
Northeast High cage luminary, Herb 
Finkelstein, leading the way with 27 
points, the supposedly underdog Dutch- 
men fooled all comers by defeating the 
Gap 76-71. The contest, however, was 
marked by superb play, the likes of 
which is due to be seen time and time 
again by this band of Dutchmen as they 
are a spirited, hard fighting combine. 
Every man did his part against the Gap 
and in plain basketball language, "out 
hustled" them for the triumph. 


At Western Maryland on Tuesday, De- 
cember 4, the Flying Dutchmen record- 
ed their second straight triumph by beat- 
ing the Green Terrors of Westminster 
76-66. Another Philadelphian, Howard 
Landa, who played for Brown Prep, dis- 
played a dead eye that evening as he sent 
28 points through the net accounting 
for some of those points on sensational 
sets. Leon Miller, who has proven to be 
one of the best players to date, played 
another great game for the Dutchmen 
considering all phases, offense, defense, 
and backward work, as did Bill Vought. 
Richie Furda, the Valley's playmaker lor 
two seasons, once again experienced dif- 
ficulty with his shots in that they seemed 
to bounce all over the hoop but in, and 
the same can be said for Finkelstein who 
had had such a torrid night against the 
Gap. Art Press, Western Maryland's 
prolific scorer, continued in that fashion 
as he ripped the silk for 28 registrations 
to be high man for the Terrors. 

Dickinson came to town on Saturday, 
December 8, and the Flying Dutchmen 
repaid them nineteen times for the one 
point victory they edged out over the 
Blue and White at Carlisle last season, 
by cooling off the Red Devils 82-62. Dick 
Zilling, the one-man wrecking crew who 
tossed in 32 markers on his home floor 
for the Dickinsonians last year, was held 
in check this time, being allowed biu 
eleven points. Landa proved high for 
the Measemen again, garnering 21 points, 
while Miller continued his excellent all 
around ball playing, hitting the hoop 
for 15. Captain Langstaff palyed h'.s 
best game thus far while Louie Sorren- 
tino also came in for his share of action 
which was good. Furda and Finkelstein 
contniued being harrassed by the prover- 
bial "lid" on the basket, being held down 
in the point department but playing well 
as usual otherwise. Finkelstein, likewise 
Vought, proved a definite detriment to 
the Red Devils around the boards. Marty 
Gluntz, Walt Courtney, Joe Oxley, and 
Jim Handley played a good bit of the 
game and came through in fine style. 

As for the Juniata game, the Dutch- 
men will meet a team composed of seven 
lettermen from a squad that won four 
and lost twelve last year. One of those 
victories being a 74-72 upset of Lebanon 
Valley at Huntingdon last season. The 
Juniatans opened their 1951-52 season 
by meeting Lycoming on December 1 
and then played the first game in their 
brand new gym, going against Bucknell, 
on December 5. December 8 they play- 
ed hosts to Grove City and tomorrow 

night will find the Indians at Elizabeth- 
town, playing the Blue Jays. Then, of 
course, they appear here on Saturday 

Saturday's contest will mark the foi- 
tieth basketball battle between Juniata 
and Valley hardwood teams up through 
the years. The series has been compara- 
tively close with the local aggregation 
winning 22 while the Redmen from 
Huntingdon have won 18. In their ap- 
pearance here at Annville last season the 
Injuns took a 74-60 beating. 

Topping the list of dribblers on the 
J squad is Tom Green of Burlington, 
N. J., a senior who has been elected cap- 
tain. Dave Bayer, Woodbury, N. J., jun- 
ior, and Jack Dickey, Berlin, Pa., senior, 
are the only two-time letter winners who 
are available for action. A junior, Leo 
Kuhn, Hollidaysburg, Pa., and three 
sophomores, John Cook, Greensburg, 
Pa.; Ed Felkicher, Bromall, Pa.; and Ed 
Weirauch, Camden, N. J.; are the other 

Fran Zimmerman, former Annville 
High athlete and a sophomore at Juni- 
ata, will see his part of action, while 
three freshmen complete the squad. Thev 
are Dave Pollock of Berwick, Pa.; Herb 
Law, from Lilly, Pa.; and Jim Boulton 
of Burlington, N. J. 

Dr. T. Arnold Green, a dentist in 
Huntingdon, is serving his third season 
as head basketball coach of the Indiana. 
He is best known as an outstanding quar- 
terback for the Pitt Panthers in the gold- 
en days of Jock Sutherland. Dr. Green 
has also coached several successful ser- 
vice teams. A professional baseball play- 
er at one time, he also serves as assistant 
football coach at Juniata. That's what we 
call really filling in, if you'll pardon the 

Following Saturday evening's game 
the Dutchmen will not resume basketball 
action until December 28 when they le- 
turn here for the Tournament. Their 
next regular season game will be in the 
Lynch Memorial on January 5 against 

Hockey Team Loses 
Seven Senior Players 

The hockey team closed its season 
with a splendid record. Since the team 
lost only one game this year, theii record 
comes to three losses and 24 wins with- 
in a period of four seasons. 

It was the last season for five varsity 
members. The halfback trio made up cf 
Jeanne Hutchinson, center halfbacK; 
Ruth Shumate, left halfback; and Libby 
Roper, right halfback, have played to- 
gether for two years on the varsity 
squad. These versatile Tri-State half- 
backs hail from New Jersey, Pennsylva- 
nia, and Delaware, respectively. The oth- 
er two varsity players who play on the 
forward line are Elaine Barron, right 
wing, and Mickey Begg, center forward, 
who both hail from New Jersey. 

This year's team was capably led by 
the co-captains, Elaine Barron and Libby 
Roper, two of the team's competent play- 
ers. The other nine varsity players we< e 
Barbara Eckenroth, Jean Garverich, 
Mickey Begg, Rosie Hollinger, Jean Hut- 
chinson, Ruth Shumate, Nancy Ecken- 
roth, Sandra Oliver, and Evelyn Eby. 
Active varsity substitutes were Lois 
Reedy, Jane Lutz, and Gerry Mease. 
Jane Lutz and Gerry Mease are also sen- 
iors who will be graduating this year. 

The junior varsity team consisted of 
Jane Lutz, Gerry Mease, Lee Whitemac, 
Nancy Risdon, Gail Edger, Joan Sher- 
man, Mary Louise Young, Sandra Oliver, 
Nancy Gower, Lynette Waller and Joyce 
Dissinger. The co-captains of the junior 
varsity team were Jane Lutz and Gerry 

Four members of the team, Jeanne 
Hutchnison, Libby Roper, Elaine Barron, 
and Evelyn Eby, were honored by being 
selected to represent Lebanon Valley at 
the Mid-East Hockey Tournament at Ro- 
chester, N. Y. Jeanne Hutchinson went 
on to the National Tournament at Bos- 
ton, Mass., and thereby gained great dis- 
tinction for the school. 

The greatest amount of thanks and 
recognition should be given to the cap- 
able coach, Jackie Smith, who is respon- 
sible for the excellent hockey teams de- 
veloped during the last four years.

Princeton Has Dazzlin' Kaz 
Uppers Have Flippin' Tin 



Lebanon Valley's Bloody Bowl game 
came off as scheduled on Saturday after- 
noon and if you think Navy beat Army 
you should have seen the rough, tough, 
burley, wicked, mauling, pushing, shov- 
ing, bashing, battering, knocking, punch- 
ing, moving, whipping, stamping, almost 
killing Upperclassmen lower than Frank 
Howe's cigarette supply Underclassmen 
to the tune of 25-0 before 73 spectators 
and one cocker spaniel. 

The Uppers had a two-ton line that 
would make Frank Leahy cancel a game 
and fill in Michigan State, but the 
Unders had no fear and played the Upps 
to the hilt making up in fight what they 
didn't have in good old Polish shonka. 

Mike Palazzo, the courageous Phiia- 
delphian, who pushes old ladies down 
flights of stairs to warm up for games 
like these, blocked a punt attempt, pick- 
ed up the bouncing football and ran 87 
yards for the first touchdown to give the 
Uppers a 6-0 lead which the younger 
boys on the field never managed to 

"Aluminum" Tarantola, we're tired of 
calling him "Tin," passed to Harry "Ot- 
to" Graham for the second score of the 
game, the pass coming after Tarantola, a 
poor man's Kazmaier, eluded the entiie 
Under team and hurled a 56 yard pass to 
Harry in the end zone. Harry caught 
the oval with eight opponents around 
him and was wildly cheered with a "Go, 
Dad!" by the Conserv students. 

Tarantola, Lebanon Valley's own bit 
of Sicily, brought the throng (Libby Ro- 
per and Clair Caskey) to its feet again, 
as he spied Benedict Salamandra comb- 
ing his hair in the left flat and tossed him 
a 62 yard aerial. Sal playfully balanced 
the pigskin on his pinky and ran to the 
end zone to score with nary a man near 
him, his closest pursuer 45 yards down- 

Scotty "Al Wistert" Hamor, the Paul 
Whiteman of the gridiron, attempted to 
bull his way over for the extra point 
but even a John Deer tractor couldn't 
have dented that staunch and determined 
Underclassmen line blocked by scrappy, 
6-7, 234 pound Stan Cohen, the Harris- 
burger. George Strong felt so good as a 
result of stopping Hamor that his head 
began to swell and couldn't find a helmet 
to fit him the rest of the game. 

Before Sy "Steelton Killer" Macut 
scored the last TD with his blue suede 
football shoes and Hamor fell into the 
end zone for an extra point, the Uppers 
showed off two terrific fullbacks in 475 
pound Willie "Splat" Tomilen who car- 
ried the ball like Leon Hart and played 
a whale of a game, and the amazing 
"Poochie" Kaufman leased from the Tel 
Aviv Terrapins of the Lakewood League. 

Class was added to the affair with the 
presence of "Percival" Ayers, the local 
Cornell-Princeton pennant salesman and 
"Marmaduke" Zangrilli, one of Pitts- 
burgh's immorals. Lynn Blecker — I say 
— Lynn Blecker, also played a great 
game as did Gene "King" Kobylarz and 
Neil "The One and Only Tiger" Timber- 

Al "Sorrentino" Waraksa called sig- 
nals for the Unders and was the object 
of many attacks during the afternoon. 
The Unders fought the Uppers very well 
but were overwhelmed anyway. 

A fascinating thing at the game be- 
sides Tritch's golden toe, were John 
Walter's stockings, and the bucket of 
some sort of suds that the guys drank ai 
half-time. It must have been something 
worthwhile if Joe "Bum" Ferrer ran half 
way acorss the field to sample it. 

In closing, we wish to congratulate 
Coach "Charlie Caldwell" Shonosky oi 
the Uppers and Coach Joe Oxley of 

Second Invitational 
Basketball Tournament 
Held December 28-29 

The Second Lebanon Valley College 
Invitational Basketball Tournament wiil 
take place in the Lynch Memorial Gym- 
nasium on December 28 and 29 this 
year with six teams participating. Those 
accepting bids to the tourney are Al- 
bright College, Elizabethtown College, 
Franklin & Marshall College, Lehigh 
University. Scranton University, and tne 
Flying Dutchmen. Last year nine tean«s 
participated in the event including those 
mentioned above plus Dickinson College, 
Moravian College, and Pennsylvania 
Military College. 

The tournament was initiated by Leb- 
anon Valley's Director of Athletics and 
head basketball coach, Ralph R. Mease. 
The tournament began on December 28 
last year, also, and that day saw five 
games played in the Lynch Memorial 
with Elizabethtown's squad earning 
themselves the name of "Ironmen" be- 
cause they opened the tourney play by 
whaling Dickinson 58-34 and closed out 
their day's activity with a 54-47 drub- 
bing of Penn Military. Albright nipped 
Moravian 64-61, Scranton slammed Le- 
high 66-46, and Mease's own ran up the 
highest team total in the three day affair 
by beating Franklin & Marshall 78-73 
during the course of the day's activity. 

The next night Albright knocked out 
E-town 47-39 and the Dutchmen bowed 
to Scranton's Royals 59-50 in the semi- 
final matches. The following evening the 
Blue and White of the Valley captured 
third place and the consoaltion crown by 
dumping Eilzabethtown 62-53 while Al- 
bright's Roaring Lions romped to a 76- 
65 win over Scranton for the tournament 

Lebanon Valley's Al Murawski was 
named the Most Valuable Player of the 
tournament and also received recogni- 
tion for scoring the most points in the 
affair, thirty-five against the Diplomats 
of Franklin and Marshall. 

Tiny Parry and Bob Lebo of the Leb- 
anon Daily News and Sam Angle, bas- 
ketball coach of Lebanon High School, 
selected a Tourney All-Star team consist- 
ing of Murawski, Walt Lenz of F&M, 
Gerald Potts and Bob Ruoff of Albright, 
and Tom Rittenhouse of Scranton. These 
men were awarded plaques as a result of 
their being selected on that honored 

The tournament was a huge success 
with over 7,000 spectators viewing the 
three day affair. All the visiting teams 
and official parties of the respective 
schools made favorable comment regard- 
ing the venture and looked forward tf> 
the Second Tourney which will be held 
this month. Last year the guests of iM 
Valley resided in the Men's Dormitory 
while here and took their meals at the 
American Legion. 

The tournament proves its worth not 
only as far as athletics it concerned, but 
is a good chance to show off the Lynch 
Memorial, and creates a bond of friend- 
ship among the rival schools participat-

the New York Sun, helped educate the 
public to want news.
